Questions, Answers Remain On Gay Marriage In NJ

Gay marriage is now legal in New Jersey, but questions linger about some of the details.

State officials say civil unions remain in effect and aren’t converted automatically to marriages, so same-sex couples who want to tie the knot will need to obtain marriage licenses.

It isn’t so clear whether gay couples legally married in other states automatically are considered married in New Jersey. Gay rights advocates say the state attorney general should issue a legal opinion saying that’s the case, but that hasn’t happened yet.

Gay rights groups and lawmakers are discussing whether to push a law that would address those issues and others.

Same-sex marriage became legal Monday as a result of a court order. New Jersey is the 14th state to recognize gay marriage.
