Zacatecas Congress approves same-sex marriage – Mexico News Daily

“We’re very happy that in this legislature, finally … it was achieved. I’m overjoyed at the large number of deputies who joined. I was very sad that some who we thought were going to be in favor of the [LGBT] community voted against. What a shame and what a pity for those types of deputies, but the good news is that equal marriage is approved in Zacatecas,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Catholic Diocese of Zacatecas expressed its disapproval in a statement.

“Their vote in favor is a hard blow to the family, a fundamental institution of society and does nothing to contribute to the search for solutions to the real problems of Zacatecans,” the statement said. “It is worrying that in the discourse there is talk of values, of rebuilding the social fabric, but with these actions, the basic unit of society is attacked.”

The state Congress voted two years ago on the question of reforming state marriage laws, but the vote failed by a close vote of 13 to 11, with two abstentions.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2015 that civil codes defining marriage as between a man and a woman or for the sole purpose of procreation were unconstitutional, but some states have still not changed their laws, meaning that in order to get married within their borders same-sex couples must apply for a marriage license with their local civil registry, be rejected and then file for an injunction and wait for their case to move through the system.
