Culiacan, Mexico, Jun 20, 2019 / 17:40 pm
On Tuesday, the legislature in the state of Sinaloa in northern Mexico rejected a bill which sought to redefine marriage.
The bill, which sought to amend articles 40 and 165 of the Sinaloa Family Code, was defeated by a vote of 20 to 18.
The rejection of the legislative proposal means that the Sinaloa Family Code continues to recognize in its Article 40 that marriage consists of "one man and one woman, with equal rights, duties and obligations, with the possibility to generate human reproduction in a free, responsible and informed way."
The failed bill had sought to replace "a man and a woman" with "persons."
