Information on New Jersey Lesbian Weddings
NO ONE NEEDS TO BE ACCEPTED - WE ARE ALL ONE
What is a New Jersey Same Sex Marriage?
A same sex wedding marriage and an opposite sex marriage is an equivalent marriage. A lebian wedding couple who enters into a New Jersey marriage is eligible for all the state rights that an opposite sex married couple has.
How do I get a New Jersey Marriage License?
Getting a New Jersey same sex marriage license is the same as getting an opposite same sex marriage license in New Jersey.
What rights come with a New Jersey Lesbian Marriage?
New Jersey lesbian marriages grant all of the same benefits, protections and responsibilities under the law as are granted to spouses in an opposite sex marriage.
In September 2013, a judge of the Superior Court ruled that as a result of the U.S. Supreme Court's June 2013 decision in United States v. Windsor, New Jersey's constitution requires the state to recognize same-sex marriages. The Windsor decision held that the federal government was required to provide the same benefits to same-sex couples who were married under state law as to other married couples. Therefore, the state court reasoned in Garden State Equality v. Dow, because same-sex couples in New Jersey were limited to civil unions; which are not recognized as marriages under federal law, the state must permit civil marriage for same-sex couples. This ruling, in turn, relied on the 2006 decision of the New Jersey Supreme Court in Lewis v. Harris that the state was constitutionally required to afford the rights and benefits of marriage to lesbian wedding couples. The Supreme Court had ordered the state legislature to correct the constitutional violation, by permitting either same-sex marriage or civil unions with all the rights and benefits of marriage, within 180 days. In response, the legislature passed a bill to legalize civil unions on December 21, 2006, which became effective on February 19, 2007.
In 2012, the New Jersey Legislature had passed a bill to legalize same-sex marriage, but it was vetoed by Governor Chris Christie.
Following the trial court decision in Garden State Equality v. Dow, the Christie administration asked the state Supreme Court to grant a stay of the decision pending appeal. On October 18, 2013, the Supreme Court unanimously denied the request for a stay. Three days later, on the day the trial court ruling went into effect and local officials had begun issuing marriage licenses to lesbian wedding couples, and some lesbian wedding ceremonies had been performed, the Governor withdrew the state's appeal. This action removed the last potential impediment to same-sex marriages in the state.
