ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico officials say they are preparing for gay couples across the state who may try to obtain marriage licenses on Valentine's Day.
Bernalillo County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver says her office has been notified by advocates of gay marriage that demonstrations are planned for Valentine's Day wedding ceremonies. The office said officials are expecting that some gay couples will try to get marriage licenses to protest the state's law prohibiting gay marriage.
Oliver says the office has been advised that New Mexico law prohibits county clerks from issuing such licenses.
Oliver says even though she can't issue those licenses, she supports gay couples having the right to marry.
Valentine's Day is the most popular day of the year for marriage licenses to be issued in the state.
