Same-Sex Couples Starting to Apply for Marriage Licenses in N.J.

David McNew/Getty Images(TRENTON, N.J.) -- Same-sex couples in New Jersey are expected to start lining up early this weekend to apply for marriage licenses.

The state's Supreme Court ruled Friday that New Jersey must allow gay marriage.

Gay couples will officially be allowed to marry beginning Monday morning at 12:01, but municipalities are opening up their clerks' offices over the weekend so that couples can start applying for their marriage licenses.

In Jersey City, the clerk's office opened for three hours Saturday beginning at 9 a.m.

And in some towns, officials are doing more than just opening their doors. In Lambertville, Mayor David DelVecchio says he will lead one wedding ceremony.
