GOP Wants to Outlaw Gay Marriage in New Mexico 2011
Outlawing gay marriage already was headed to the Legislature's inbox, but an attorney general's opinion supporting the validity of some same-sex unions could give the issue a higher profile.

Attorney General Gary King said this week that New Mexico courts likely would recognize the legality of same-sex marriages performed in other states or countries where they're legal. The opinion, while non-binding, was praised by same-sex marriage supporters as logical and helpful to couples wondering about their status. Recognizing such marriages "strengthens families; it gives you the tools and the security to build a life together and protect your family," said Lynn Perls, an Albuquerque lawyer who specializes in family law.

But Sen. William Sharer, R-Farmington, said Wednesday that King's opinion has galvanized opponents of same-sex marriage and could help his efforts to get a measure through the 2011 session making such marriages illegal.
