District Judge Alan Malott ruled today that state law doesn't prevent same-sex couples from marrying in New Mexico, and that Bernalillo County -- the most populous county in the state and the home of Albuquerque, New Mexico's largest city -- must grant marriage licenses to same-sex couples who apply for them.
As I noted earlier this afternoon, the addition of Bernalillo County to the marriage equality column means that half of New Mexico's two million people live in counties where same-sex couples have the freedom to marry.
The Bernalillo County Clerk will update their software and begin issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples tomorrow.
It's a great day for equality in the Land of Enchantment!
