Marriage Equality in Mexico City
On December 21st Mexico City became the second city in Latin America to allow same-sex couples to marry and to have the same rights as heterosexual unions, the first being Buenos Aires. The final vote was 39 in favor to 20 against. The revision will change the definition of marriage to a union between two people, instead of the current version, which specifies a union between a man and a woman. In a separate motion Mexico City also confirmed that same-sex couples would be able to adopt children.
