Unanimous Ruling By Mexican Supreme Court Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage In State of Jalisco

From JoeMyGod:

In a unanimous 11-0 ruling, today the Mexican Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in the state of Jalisco, home to the popular gay resort Puerto Vallarta, and Guadalajara, the nation’s second largest city.

Same-sex marriage is legal and recognized in all of Mexico’s 31 states, but Jalisco becomes only the sixth state to allow same-sex marriages without a complex legal petitioning process that can take up to one month and cost $1000.

Jalisco today joins the states of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Guerrero, Nayarit and Quintana Roo, the federal district of Mexico City, and the city of Santiago de QuerĂ©taro, capital of QuerĂ©taro state, in allowing marriages to take place free of the above-described nonsense.
