New Mexico Court Okays Same Sex Marriage
New Mexico (CNN) The New Mexico Supreme Court ruled the state's anti-gay marriage laws are unconstitutional Thursday.
The unanimous ruling ordered county clerks to begin issuing marriage licenses to qualified same-sex couples.
New Mexico would become the 17th state plus the District of Columbia to allow same sex ceremonies.
Eight counties have been issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in recent months...
Today's ruling requires those marriages now be recognized as valid statewide.
