Breaking News - Gay Marriage In New Jersey

Posted on October 18, 2013 at 3:45 PM

Big news from New Jersey. Gay marriages can take place as of Monday! The Supreme Court denied the state's request to put a stay on a lower court's order allowing gay marriages while the overall marriage equality case is being heard. This does not mean marriage equality is complete, however. Today's ruling just lifts the stay, it doesn't deal with the substantive case. That will be decided by the Supreme Court in the coming months. But in the meantime marriages can go forward.

 

As I understand it, the court was unlikely to lift the stay if they felt that the state had a decent chance to win the primary case. So it looks good for permanent equality in the next year. But in the meantime people can get married beginning Monday!

Ulysses - I went in this morning to post a ShortCut about your marriage, and then I see you beat me to the punch in announcing it. But since fewer people will see your comment - and your news deserves a headline! - I announced it via a ShortCut anyway. I'm really, really, really happy for you guys! With Chris Christie around I didn't think marriage would become a reality in New Jersey for awhile, but here you are!

Ah, yes, as of October 21, New Jersey is now the center of the collapse of civilization as we know it. And that's a wonderful thing. As Andy noticed, my partner of 37 years (we actually met in October 38 years ago) and I are legally married. The kids were pleased. The mayor of our town was pleased.
