Today marks another win for civil equality and humanity.

New Mexico is officially the 17th state plus the District of Columbia to allow same sex marriage. The New Mexico Supreme Court declared it is unconstitutional to deny a marriage license to gay and lesbian couples. There were eight counties issuing marriage licenses before the law was ratified, according to AP.

Former NM Governor Gary Johnson celebrated the news on Twitter:

Over/under on when Arizona legalizes same sex marriage? How long did it take for the state to recognize Martian Luther King Jr. Day? Place your bets in the comment section below.
