New Jersey Supreme Court Approves Marriage Equality

Back in 2012, both New Jersey's House and Senate passed a bill making marriage equality a reality in the state. Except the bill was vetoed by Republican Governor Chris Christie. Now the New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled in favor for equal marriage rights. This is the first state to do so by a state judicial decision since Connecticut in 2008.  Now New Jersey can live up to it's motto Liberty and Prosperity.
