Gay couples legally married in other states and countries will be recognized in New Mexico, the state’s attorney general said in a legal opinion issued Tuesday.
"A comprehensive legal analysis by my office concludes that valid same-sex marriages in other states would likely be valid in New Mexico," Attorney General Gary King (pictured) said.
