Mexico City Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

12/21/09 AP:
MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexico City lawmakers on Monday made the city the first in Latin America to legalize same-sex marriage, a change that will give homosexual couples more rights, including allowing them to adopt children ... The bill calls for changing the definition of marriage in the city's civil code. Marriage is currently defined as the union of a man and a woman. The new definition will be "the free uniting of two people" ... Mayor Marcelo Ebrard of the Democratic Revolution Party was widely expected to sign the measure into law.
