It's that time of year again when we get hurricanes and earthquakes. Preliminary reports show the quake to have been a 7.1 with its epicenter in Acapulco. There were actually two quakes. The first a 4.7 near San Marcos, then the bigger one between Acapulco and Chilpancingo. The second one felt pretty strong here in our home in downtown Zihuatanejo. I expect there will be quite a bit of damage from Acapulco all the way to Mexico City and around the region including Taxco, Iguala and Cuernavaca. Replicas continue, and it was felt as far away as Veracruz and Michoacán. Power outages are being reported in the region of the quake.

STAY ALERT!

While parts of the USA seems to be going Back To The 50's, Mexico's Corte Suprema decriminalized abortion today in a far-reaching landmark ruling. ¡BRAVO!

Zihuatanejo's official count of currently active cases of Covid-19 is at 106 today. Locally around 10 schools are back to having classes. People are trying to be careful and abide by the health protocols, though bar patrons cannot be expected to be responsible.

Today was another day of absolutely beautiful perfect weather. A bit warm around the early afternoon, but a brief shower cooled things down a bit.

Keep up with all of Mother Nature's activity on my Zihuatanejo-Ixtapa Weather page.

Nice photo????

It is good news about the decision if the supreme court. I am skeptical about how it will be implemented considering that Guerrero still doesn't have marriage equality despite a supreme court ruling how many years ago?

The photo is from the day before yesterday. Lots of "superstitious" locals will say that's an earthquake sky. But we know better, right? ;-)

The ruling by the Corte Suprema de Justicia de la Nación makes it illegal for states to punish a woman for getting an abortion. They can still punish the doctors. Step by step.

Do you know when and/or what the ruling was regarding el matrimonio igualitario? As far as I know, the office of Registro Civil Municipal has to recognize all marriages regardless of the gender of the couple. I thought local wedding planners had been providing services for same sex marriages for several years now.

These are the states that currently allow same sex marriage.

Article showing states currently allowing same-sex marriage

This is an article that discusses the decision in 2015 by the court.

Most of the same sex couples that we know who have married here in Zihuatanejo have either traveled to some place like Mexico City or paid an officiant from another state to come and perform their legal marriage (i.e. Michoacan). While Guerrero is obligated to recognize that marriage, they do not allow for a process for same-sex couples to get married here. In mine and Jesus' case this has caused some hurdles that has greatly contributed to the delay of our legal marriage. We were scheduled to be married in May of 2020 and were planning to travel to Michoacan for our legal marriage. The pandemic put a hold on that process for many reasons. First it was because we were trying to follow strict procedures for isolation. As time has wore on we were hampered by financial hardships brought on by the pandemic and restricted hours of operation of offices in other states. It would be nice to have been able to use local government offices to be able to complete our marriage but that is not currently possible as we have been told many times. It is a shame.

Thanks, amigo. I'll look into this and see if I can't get some movement on it from our incoming state lawmakers after October 15.
