GAY MARRIAGE LEGALIZED IN NEW JERSEY

A Superior Court judge has ruled gay marriage to be legal in New Jersey. These marriages can take place as soon as Oct. 21. The Christie administration is expected to appeal the ruling. The judge ruled that couples wouldn’t be allowed federal benefits if the state kept its civil union law in place. The Christie administration said it was a federal issue that shouldn’t impact state law. The ruling can be appealed to a higher court and then eventually to the state Supreme Court.
