Gusciora Would Like New Jersey Allows Gay Marriage

Written by 

Reed Gusciora, openly gay member of Parliament, wonders why New Jersey could not fight for marriage equality just like New York.

As a result, he presented a bill, A4130, which would legalize the marriage between same-sex people.

"They’re talking about it in New York," he said, "Why aren’t we talking about it in New Jersey?"

The problem is that Governor Chris Christie, republican, is against it but, in New York, Gouvernor Andrew Cuomo launched the bill to lequalize gay marriage.

"I believe marriage is an institution between one man and one woman,” said Christie on CNN, "I think it’s special and unique in society, and I think we can have civil unions that can help to give the same type of legal rights to same-sex couples that marriage gives them. But I just think marriage has as a special connotation. And I couldn’t see myself changing my mind on that."

New Jersey allows civil unions but unfortunately, it seems gay marriage bill won't pass.
