Gay Marriage Becomes Legal In New Jersey

New Jersey became the 14th State in the United States to legalize gay marriage after Governor Chris Christie withdrew his administration's legal opposition to same-sex nuptials.

The administration's change in position came after the Supreme Court of New Jersey denied a motion to stay the Trial Court's decision of September 27, 2013, which permitted any and all same sex couples satisfying the requirements to enter into a civil marriage to marry in New Jersey, effective October 21, 2013.

The governor's decision, which came just hours after same-sex couples began marrying in New Jersey, removed a legal challenge that could have left those newlyweds in limbo until the courts ruled on an appeal previously filed by the Christie administration.
