NJ gay couple can't get marriage license

TRENTION, N.J. — Two plaintiffs in the lawsuit that brought same-sex marriage to New Jersey say they have not been able to get a license to wed.

Karen and Marcye Nicholson-McFadden said Sunday they tried to apply for a marriage license in Aberdeen.

The town clerk told the couple on Friday she couldn't issue a license to a same-sex couple without further instructions from the state.

Gov. Chris Christie had instructed the Department of Health to cooperate with municipalities to issue licenses. The clerk did not immediately return a call to comment Sunday.

The New Jersey Supreme Court last week refused to delay a lower court order for the state to start recognizing same-sex marriages at 12:01 a.m. Monday. Several couples are expected to marry right as the state begins recognizing the unions.

Now that Andrew Luck is getting ready to start the third year of his NFL career, did the Colts make the right decision to release Peyton Manning and turn the offense over to Luck?

Yes, the future is bright.
No, the Colts would have won another Super Bowl by now if they had kept Manning.
Don't know; don't care
