Monday: New Jersey to boldly join every state to its north and south
The state Supreme Court will not stand in the way. Starting Monday (10/21), Garden State same-sex couples will be free to marry:
New Jersey's always been such an annoying case in the larger marriage conversation. The state should have had marriage years ago, with its legislature opting to implement civil unions instead. Then there was that passed bill bumping civil unions to marriage, which Republican governor Chris Christie so unceremoniously vetoed. There have been so many insults along the course, with so many unfortunate decisions that delayed within-reach justice.
It really seems like the imperfect path is nearing its always logical, always inevitable conclusion. While many Garden Staters will always bemoan the lost years, it's time to look to a brighter future.
