The DOMA decision from the SCOTUS will have a major effect in New Jersey.

Assuming DOMA is overturned, that will give those wavering legislators the political cover they need to override Christie's veto.

That and the fact the override vote will be held AFTER the primaries are done on Jun 4th.

Good points, Sheeple. Let's hope DOMA falls.

It will affect other states with civil unions as well or those considering civil unions.

One of the anti-gays main arguments was that civil unions gave all the rights & benefits to same-sex couples so marriage was unnecessary. Once DOMA is overturned that is no longer the case and it takes away their last "legitimate" argument.

Federal recognition will push more states toward marriage equality.

4 months to go.......(I'll be out of fingernails by then)
