The City of Hoboken has begun accepting applications from same sex couples for marriage licenses, according to city spokesman Juan Melli.

City Hall will be open on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. to accept marriage license applications. Applications will be accepted at the Health Department, located on the third floor of City Hall.

The news came on the heels of a court decision which legalized same-sex marriage throughout New Jersey on the grounds that the state could not ban same sex couples from marrying once the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act this summer.

“It is time for full equality in New Jersey, and I look forward to celebrating our first same sex wedding on Monday,” said Mayor Dawn Zimmer. “Hoboken supports equality, and our doors are open for all loving couples to apply for a marriage license.”

Zimmer is expected perform the first wedding ceremony in Hoboken for a same sex couple on Monday, Oct. 21. - Dean DeChiaro
