Purple Unions designed/maintained by Mongoose on the Loose Copyright 2014 | Purple Unions, PO Box 4666, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762

Some images from the slideshow above provided by Candace Freeland at Blue Pearl Images, used with permission



At Purple Unions, we take marriage equality seriously. As a gay couple who have been together since 1992, we know that gay and lesbian couples can and do form long-term, stable, supportive relationships, and we believe the institution of marriage and all the responsabilities and benefits that come with it should be opened up to committed gay and lesbian couples everywhere. To this end, we created Purple Unions as a place where gay and lesbian couples can find gay friendly wedding vendors to help them plan their perfect wedding day.

New Jersey passed a civil unions bill in 2006, but attempts to pass marriage equality were frustrated by the state's GOP Governor Chris Christie.

In October 2013, a state court ruled in favor of marriage equality, setting a start date of 10/21/13 for weddings. The Christie administration appealed the ruling, and the state Supreme Court took the case, scheduling a hearing in January, 2014 on the issue. But the court declined to stay the weddings, and New Jersey same sex couples began legally marrying on 10/21/13. Six hours later, Governor Christie's office announced it was dropping the appeal, meaning marriage equality is here to stay in New Jersey.

New Jersey also allows gay and lesbian couples to adopt.

We hope that you find these resources useful, and that you'll join us in the fight for marriage equality!

--Scott & Mark, Purple Unions
