Talk about being wedded to politics.
Jonathan Carroll and Stephanie McClure of Hoboken, N.J., chose Election Day to form their own perfect union. Well, they figured they didn't really have a choice.
Carroll says the original plan was to get married at a banquet hall in the shore community of Point Pleasant, but Superstorm Sandy devastated the area. Any thought of waiting beyond Tuesday to tie the knot was wiped away by an oncoming nor'easter that is expected to hit New Jersey on Wednesday and could result in more delays.
So Carroll and McClure said "I do" at Hoboken City Hall on Tuesday, while voters cast ballots across the way.
"You know how they say a rough beginning equates to a smooth ending?" Carroll said. "If that's the way it goes, it's going to be cake and ice cream the rest of my life."
