WATCH: New Jersey Marriage is One Week Away

It’s so close we can almost taste the cake and bouquet and garters: marriage equality is scheduled to start in New Jersey next Monday, the 21st.

But it still might not happen. Governor Christie is still pounding on the glass at the back of the church and hollering (metaphorically), and there’s a slim chance he might actually get his way.

He’s already tried once to delay the start date, but a judge smacked him down. Now he’s appealing that smackdown, and Lambda Legal has until Tuesday to respond. Seldom is wedding planning quite so edge-of-your-seat.

Meanwhile, lawmakers in Illinois are about to enter their fall veto session, during which time they could consider a marriage bill. If you live in Illinois — or know anyone who does — there’s never been a more important time to get involved. Visit if you can join them for next Tuesday’s rally.

    Believe it when you see it. Governor Shenanigans loves to pull strings and get his way. It will be a drama up to the last minute.

    Well governor “see what sugary treats I can get past my lap band” tub-o-lard Christie HAS to play to the tea bagger KKK vote in order to even BE the nominee for the repugnant-klans in 2016. Otherwise it’s going to be a Cruze/Palin ticket. I wonder if the birther movement will be just as vile with Cruze as with Obama, seeing as how Cruze WAS born in Canada. Me think not.

    @Harley: Cruze/Palin ticket… Oh god please make that happen. LMAO… that would mean at least 4 more years of progressive control, more equality rights for everyone.
