Although the Supreme Court ruled in favor of states recognizing same-sex marriages more than 6 years ago in 2015, recent shifts in the court's justices has compelled some states to enact their own protections.

Governor Murphy of New Jersey has done just that.

As of Monday, January 11, 2022, same-sex marriage is codified into New Jersey state law. This new law safeguards the right for gay couples to marry in the event Obergefell v. Hodges is overturned by the Supreme Court.
