TRENTON, New Jersey (Reuters) - New Jersey's Assembly voted 41 to 33 on Thursday to approve a gay marriage bill that could pave the way for New Jersey to join six other states where same-sex couples can today legally wed.
To become law, the bill would have to be signed by Governor Chris Christie, a Republican who has promised to veto the measure.
