The congress of Mexico's most populous state, State of Mexico, on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly to legally recognize same-sex marriage, becoming the 29th of Mexico's 32 states to do so. "Equal marriage is a public institution, whereby two people freely decide to share a life," the state's legislative body said in a tweet after lawmakers passed the bill with 50 votes in favor and 16 against.

The state of Mexico, which borders the capital, is the country's most populous state and one of its most gender-violent. It counts close to 17 million inhabitants - nearly five times the population of Uruguay. The approval follows recent legalizations by the states of Sonora and Sinaloa.
