New Jersey gives go ahead to same sex unions

NEW YORK (AFP) - The Supreme Court in the US state of New Jersey gave the go ahead for same-sex unions.
"Denying rights and benefits to committed same-sex couples that are statutorily given to their heterosexual counterparts violates the equal protection guarantee" of the state's constitution, Justice Barry Albin said, delivering the court's opinion.
"Although we cannot find that a fundamental right to same-sex marriage exists in this state, the unequal dispensation of rights and benefits to committed same-sex partners can no longer be tolerated under our state constitution" he added.
"To comply with this constitutional mandate, the legislature must either amend the marriage statutes to include same-sex couples or create a parallel statutory structure, which will provide for, on equal terms, the rights and benefits enjoyed and burdens and obligations borne by married couples."
