Right after the stroke of midnight on Monday, seven same-sex couples said “I do” in the marble rotunda of Newark’s City Hall as New Jersey became the 14th state in the union to allow gay marriage.

Senator-elect Cory Booker presided over the weddings, enthusiastically telling each couple “you may kiss your spouse” after warning them that marriage is something that should not be entered into lightly. The new spouses included a bus driver, two social workers, a municipal court data processor and the retired dean of students at Rutgers University. (Yahoo News)
