"As the purpose of matrimony is not procreation, there is no justified reason that the matrimonial union be heterosexual, nor that it be stated as between only a man and only a woman. Such a statement turns out to be discriminatory in its mere expression."

- Mexican Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality in Mexico. The ruling doesn't automatically strike down state marriage laws, but allows couples to seek injunctions from district judges, who are now obligated to grant marriage licenses.
