Mexico’s supreme court has ruled it is unconstitutional for Mexican states to bar same-sex marriages.
But the court’s ruling is considered a “jurisprudential thesis” and does not invalidate any state laws, meaning gay couples denied the right to wed would have to turn to the courts individually. Given the ruling, judges and courts would have to approve same-sex marriages.
The high court ruled that any state law which considers the ultimate purpose of marriage to be “procreation, and or defines (marriage) as celebrated between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional.”
Gay marriage is legal in some parts of Mexico, including Mexico City and the northern state of Coahuila.
The ruling was delivered June 3, but didn’t become known until June 11.
