Reasons Behind Christie's New Stance on Gay Marriage Debate

Reasons Behind Christie's New Stance on Gay Marriage Debate
BY FRANCESCA PHILLIPPY
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

While speaking to reporters at the National Governors Associates, Gov. Chris Christie stated that while same-sex marriage is “settled” in New Jersey, it’s not time for opponents to give up the fight.

Back in October of 2013 same sex couples in New Jersey were given the green light to marry. Christie opposed the Supreme Court’s decision to outlaw DOMA, but abandoned his fight. The Governor concluded that signals from the court and the march of history were against him according to the New York Times.

“When I know that I’ve been defeated you don’t bang your head against a wall and spend taxpayer money to do it,” he said, explaining his decision. “Absent a change in the legislature, I think at the moment its settled law in New Jersey.”

The decision not to appeal a judge’s ruling that allowed the weddings removed the last hurdle to legalize same-sex marriage in New Jersey, making it the 14th state, along with the District of Columbia, to allow gay couples to wed.
