According to Guanajuato’s newspaper “El Correo”, 23 same-sex couples have married in the state of Guanajuato since the year 2014.

In that sense, Minister of Guanajuato State Government Antonio Salvador Garcia declared that the demand for same-sex weddings has not increased significantly, with an average of one gay marriage per month in the last two years.



When asked if any special legislation on Gay Marriage is required, Salvador Garcia said that the Congress of Guanajuato is the responsible to decide on that matter. In time, they will determine to if Civil Legislation of the state of Guanajuato needs to be modified in order to allow these couples to formalize their relation.

García continued: “We attend the federal resolutions, fulfilling the requirements, which normally present different ways to solve each situation”.

Sometimes, when they present the injunction in order to defend their rights, the court grants “a suspension of the authority decision”, in which case, same sex couples are able to marry; in other cases, the copuple has to wait until a court of law fulfills that resolution in the end.”

He concluded that the Civil Registry of Guanajuato attends to all same-sex couples, who want to get marry and present their defense.
