Few NJ Civil Unions So Far
Early figures are showing that gay couples in New Jersey aren't exactly rushing to be civil unioned. Only 229 couples have applied for licenses in the first month (although not all municipalities have reported in), which some activists say is indicative of a feeling that gay marriage will eventually come to the state, causing many couples to wait. If true, it seems curious to me that gay couples in New Jersey wouldn't at least go ahead and get the civil license, if for no other reason than to show their numbers and support for full marriage equality. However, I can understand rejecting civil unions as "less than". New Jersey civil union licenses cost $28 and can be applied for here.
