Way to go, New Jersey!

The Court stopped short of fully approving same-sex marriage but gave lawmakers six months to act. The legislature must grant either civil unions or marriage rights to same-sex couples.

The majority opinion states "that denying the rights and benefits to committed same-sex couples that are statutorily given to their heterosexual counterparts violates the equal protection guarantee of Article I, Paragraph 1 of the New Jersey Constitution."
