    NJ Court Agrees to Allow Same-Sex Marriages Monday

    NJ Court Agrees to Allow Same-Sex Marriages Monday - ABC News

    NJ Court Agrees to Allow Same-Sex Marriages Monday


    Same-sex marriages will begin within days in New Jersey after the state's highest court{state supreme court) ruled unanimously Friday to uphold a lower-court order that gay weddings must start Monday and to deny a delay that was sought by Gov. Chris Christie's administration.
    "The state has advanced a number of arguments, but none of them overcome this reality: Same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today," the court said in an opinion by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner. "The harm to them is real, not abstract or speculative."

    equal rights wins again!!!!



    Within 3 years approx 30 states could have equal rights even without SCOTUS.
    I don’t know how accurate it is and its always changing as the fight for equal rights continues, but it seems from the info I gathered from news sources, legal sites, civil rights/equal rights orgs and lastly pro/anti equal rights sites this where it stands below and its the best I got for now.

    Along with the fall of DOMA, the UN pushing for equal rights for gays based on HUMAN RIGHTS, and the 100s of human rights and civil rights orgs fighting this battle we have the following:


    Gay marriage is legal in the following countries nationally or in certain areas like us:

    Argentina
    Belgium
    Brazil
    Canada
    Denmark
    France
    Iceland
    Mexico
    Netherlands:
    New Zealand:
    Norway
    Portugal
    South Africa
    Spain
    Sweden
    United Kingdom:
    United States:
    Uruguay

    14 states and DC have equal rights:

    California
    Connecticut
    Delaware
    Iowa
    Maine
    Maryland
    Massachusetts
    Minnesota
    New Hampshire
    New York
    New Jersey
    Rhode Island
    Vermont
    Washington
    19 more are in various stages of fighting or establishing a fight for equal rights

    New Mexico – is granting equal rights for now and the SSC is going to decided on this month

    Court Case(s) in the works to establish equal rights:
    Arkansas
    Kentucky
    Michigan
    North Carolina
    Oklahoma
    Pennsylvania
    South Carolina
    Utah
    Virginia

    Court Case(s) and Legislation in the works, which ever wins first:
    Arizona
    Hawaii
    Illinois
    Nevada
    Ohio


    Legislation in the works:
    Colorado

    You're putting the cart in front of the horse. The NJ Supreme Court will still have to make its final decision early next year.

    True enough, but judging by the comments made by those same judges, it seems the outcome is pretty clear, I'd give 85-90%.

    If they take it up. They could just let the lower courts ruling be precedent in the future,

    They would have stayed the decision if there was any chance of it getting overturned. I guess the legislature blew their chance to override the veto.

    N.J. Gay Couples Line Up For Marriage Licenses
    Court Order To Recognize Same-Sex Marriages Takes Effect Monday



    TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Several gay couples in New Jersey have decided not to waste any time before tying the knot.

    Many couples were gathering late Sunday to wed in ceremonies, which were set to be held shortly after midnight. The last-minute weddings were planned after the state Supreme Courtlast week refused to delay a lower court order for the state to begin recognizing same-sex marriages at 12:01 a.m. Monday.

    Awesome!!!! good for them


    wait i just dont understand though?
    why are so many of these gays getting married?

    I thought this wasnt about marriage, i thought it was just some secret undefinable "gay agenda" and that they dont really want to get married, you know because the "gay lifestyle" is just all unsafe promiscuous sex all the time!!! LMAO <end sarcasm and reference to ignorance and bigotry>

    Yeah i read that one of the couples has been together 24 years, with kids. So much for an agenda of destroying marriage and crushing the family.

    It's tempting to play the part sometimes just to scare the bashers, but i'd rather they slide further into their hole of futility.

    I'm also thinking what an amazing journey this couple must have had. In 1989 i doubt very much they had any expectation of this day ever coming. They probably dealt with a lot of hostility, and now have been vindicated.
