Attorney General Gary King Says New Mexico Can Recognize Out-of-State Gay Marriage
Attorney General Gary King just issued an opinion saying, “A comprehensive legal analysis by my office concludes that valid same-sex marriages in other states would likely be valid in New Mexico.”
The opinion is in answer to a question posed by state Rep. Al Park, D-Albuquerque.
“While we cannot predict how a New Mexico court would rule on this issue, after review of the law in this area, it is our opinion that a same-sex marriage that is valid under the laws of the country or state where it was consummated would likewise be found valid in New Mexico.” the opinion says.
