Same-sex couples fought hard to make same-sex marriage legal in New Mexico. Now they can file a joint bankruptcy petition – but should they?
The issue of whether same-sex couples can marry legally in New Mexico is currently pending before the New Mexico Supreme Court. The New Mexico Supreme Court is currently comprised of five Democrats, and is generally considered to be a little left-leaning in many of its decisions. On top of that, the New Mexico statutes are very vague about whether the law currently allows same-sex marriage without any constitutional interpretation.
