I have a friend who lives there, in a nursing home now. I go out to see him once a year. Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there.

I LOVED the city. The only reason that I moved from Albuquerque in December, 2011 is because it turned out to be a lot colder and snowier than i expected. I moved from New York to the southwest primarily BECAUSE OF the cold and snow in New York.

So since Albuquerque turned out to be snowier and colder than I expected, I moved here to beautiful SUNNY, WARM southern Arizona instead !

A good way to test the theory is for a gay couple to apply for a marriage license to see what happens

Anything not prohibited by law is permissable.

As I read the article.......I know this has been tried before and the specific county clerk was sued by the State:
Marriage/Civil Unions
Currently in New Mexico, same-sex couples are not issued marriage licenses. In February 2004, one county clerk issued and recorded 64 marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The Supreme Court of New Mexico granted an order restraining that specific county clerk from issuing more licenses to same-sex couples pending the lower court’s resolution of the dispute. The lawsuit to restrain the county clerk was later dismissed without any decision being rendered after that clerk’s term of office ended. As of April 2005, these 64 licenses have not been challenged, nor has any other clerk issued more.
