Interesting...good decision but it'll probably be appealed to a higher court by the bigots.

So far forty couples have been issued licenses and the courthouse is staying open past regular hours to perform marriages. Such wonderful news!

You cannot currently send a star to Carrie because you have done so within the last day

Thanks for posting this good news, Carrie. The Republicans can sue all they want....I have a strong feeling that it will only solidify into law the ability of ANYONE to marry in NM. My mind continues to have difficulty understanding those whose hate overtakes their brain & heart.
