A lower-court judge had ruled that same-sex weddings must be allowed starting Monday, and the state's highest court upheld that ruling Friday. It denied a request from Gov. Chris Christie's administration to delay the weddings.
Christie had wanted the weddings delayed while the state Supreme Court decides the broader question of whether same-sex marriage should be legal. The court will hear arguments on that in January.
So dudes and gals will be able to marry each other there, but they still can’t legally pump their own gas. The mayor of Lambertville wants to officiate at the first legal wedding there. Senator-elect Cory Booker, though, may try to steal the guy’s thunder, according to a BuzzFeed report. Jeez, Booker, you won already. Can’t somebody else be a camera hog about it?
