Other States' Same-sex Marriages Valid in New Mexico
"A comprehensive legal analysis by my office concludes that valid same-sex marriages in other states would likely be valid in New Mexico," Attorney General Gary King (pictured) said.
Despite his opinion, King said he cannot predict “how a New Mexico court would rule on this issue.”
A spokesperson for New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez issued a statement, saying, "Gov. Martinez made it clear during the campaign that she opposes same-sex marriage. It's important to note that no New Mexico court has ruled on this issue."
