New Jersey (WENY) - Right now in New Jersey same-sex couples can get married, but advocates are claiming that the state of New Jersey did not give ample instructions to town clerks and others on how to administer marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
     
The New Jersey Supreme Court last week refused to delay a lower court order for the state to start recognizing marriages making same sex marriage legal in the state. Couples were ready Friday to get married but a New Jersey law requires that couples wait three days between obtaining a license and getting married.
     
There is now also a push in the state legislature to gather enough votes to override Christie's veto of a same-sex marriage bill. Christie does not support same-sex marriage and has said he wants to put the issue on the ballot.
