NEW JERSEY'S SAME-SEX MARRIAGE RULING RAISES NEW LEGAL QUESTIONS



Of course this is the furthest thing from the minds of same-sex couples who flocked to the Asbury Park clerks office, opened for rare Saturday hours to take marriage license applications. But matrimonial law attorney Sam Stoia, who I interviewed for 1010 WINS, says some of them eventually will get divorced. And there will be questions about when they actually tied the knot. He says this is because many gay couples already live as spouses in New Jersey. So if they divorce, the court may actually take into account the previous years they lived together.
