No. Although the United States does generally recognize marriages performed in Mexico, the federal government does not currently recognize same-sex marriages regardless of where they were performed.

Of course! It is a requirement of the US Constitution, that states recognize the actions of the other states. Marriage and divorce are key ones. One important exception is same-sex marriages. Ohio does not recognize same-sex marriages performed out-of-state.

Certain of the individual states also recognize same-sex marriages. Those states that have legalized same-sex marriage recognize such marriages performed within their own borders, in other states and in foreign countries.
