New Jersey to hold first gay marriages

Same-sex marriage supporters demonstrate in front of the Supreme Court on March 27, 2013 in Washington, DCNew Jersey prepared to officiate its first same-sex marriages Monday -- the 14th US state to legalize such unions, though the legal battle is set to continue. Many couples planned to tie the knot at precisely one minute after midnight (0501 GMT) Monday, the first day the unions were to be allowed after a judicial ruling last month. Republican Governor Chris Christie has appealed the judge's decision, and the case is set to be heard in early January.
