New Mexico is a progressively minded state, that has long-been considered to be a gay-friendly travel destination. In the most recent wave of marriage reforms sweeping the country, New Mexico has joined ranks with other progressive states, making it legal for same-sex couples to marry and hold the same rights that hetersexual couples have enjoyed for years. On December 19, 2013, the New Mexico Supreme Court unanimously ruled in favor of Freedom to Marry, thereby extending the “rights, protections, and responsibilities that derive from civil marriage under New Mexico law”, and making New Mexico the 17th state to legalize same-sex marriage. Previously, this right had only been available in certain counties across the state.
