Marriage Equality is in New Jersey


What a Friday!

couples in New Jersey will soon be able to marry.
Judge Mary Jacobson of the Mercer County Superior Court ruled that gay couples can get married in New Jersey starting October 21.

The judge said:

"This unequal treatment requires that New Jersey extend civil marriage to same-sex couples to satisfy equal protection guarantees of the New Jersey Constitution as interpreted by the New Jersey Supreme Court in Lewis. Same-sex couples must be allowed to marry in order to obtain equal protection of the law under the New Jersey Constitution."
This is big stuff!
