There were a lot of weddings performed in New York on Sunday.
That was the first day that gay marriage, approved in The Empire State last month, officially became legal in the sixth state in the nation to do so.
New Jersey does not recognize gay marriage.
For now, gay couples wishing to legally join together in New Jersey only have what are called "civil unions," which some proponents of gay marriage have argued not only can cause the couples to face certain legal hurdles, but also represents a separate status unequal to marriage.
Last month Lambda Legal, a New York law firm, filed a lawsuit in Superior Court of Mercer County on behalf of Garden State Equality, a statewide LGBT advocacy organization, and seven same-sex couples who claim they have been harmed from the unequal civil union system.
One of the plaintiff couples in the suit is Marsha Shapiro, 56, and Louise Walpin, 57, of Monmouth Junction, who have been together for 22 years and raised four children.
"We're deeply affected, profoundly hurt and disappointed that the New Jersey Constitution guarantees that no one should be discriminated against, yet here we are, over and over, discriminated against because we can't get married like everybody else,”
Which brings us to a question: Should New Jersey legalize gay marriage? What does New York's legalization mean for other states, like our own? Chime in below.
