This week in a historic vote in New Jersey, the state Assembly voted 42-33 to approve gay marriage. The state Senate also approved the same measure, but Gov. Chris Christie promised to veto the measure as soon as it hit his desk - and he did late Friday.
His decision has come under criticism and some elected officials have said they will work to override the governor's veto - though it is not clear if there will be enough votes to do so.
However, the governor has said his veto is conditional - he wants to put the whole matter before the public and let the issue of gay marriage be decided by the voters.
