Christie asks for stay of same-sex marriage licenses

Christie asks for stay of same-sex marriage licenses

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is asking a judge to delay an order that the state must allow same-sex marriage until an appeal can be decided.

Last week a judge ruled the state was violating its constitution by denying same-sex marriage.

The state's lawyers say in their motion for a stay that if the judge's ruling stands it could be a blow to the state's ability to make its own laws.

Christie says he wants the state's voters to decide the issue.

The state has allowed civil unions since 2006.
