The New Mexico Supreme Court has just ruled unanimously in favor of marriage equality, making the Land of Enchantment the 17th state with the freedom to marry.

From the ruling:

"We hold that the State of New Mexico is constitutionally required to allow same-gender couples to marry and must extend to them the rights, protections, and responsibilities that derive from civil marriage under New Mexico law."

And:

"All rights, protections, and responsibilities that result from the marital relationship shall apply equally to both same-gender and opposite-gender married couples."

The decision takes effect immediately.

What a great way to close out an amazing year for marriage equality!!
