Judge legalizes same-sex marriage in New Jersey [Star-Ledger]

The Garden State is a bit of an adopted home for me, being the state where my husband grew up and the one in which my in-laws (and so many relatives) still reside. This absolutely thrills for me!

Marriages could begin as soon as Oct 21.

**UPDATE: Of course it might be appealed.

**UPDATE2: Gov. Christie has vowed to appeal. Ugh.
