Does the US acknowledge Mexico marriages

Both the United States and Mexico recognize marriages performed in other jurisdictions as long as the marriage was legal in the jurisdiction where it was performed. Both countries, however, reserve the right to reject a marriage which is “against public policy” (e.g., incestuous or polygamous marriages). As for same-sex marriages, they are recognized by Mexico and all Mexican states, but not by the federal government in the United States and not by most U.S. states.
