OCEAN GROVE - Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) is against same-sex marriage, but News 12 New Jersey's John Klekamp says Christie may not have the last word.

In one month, gays and lesbians will be able to marry in New York. The new law fueled jubilation at weekend pride events, as well as some envy on the New Jersey side of the Hudson from same-sex couples who have to make do with civil unions.

The big difference between the Empire State and the Garden State: support from the top. Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y) championed marriage equality while Christie remains opposed.

Some say that New Jersey may still change its laws, but only when Christie is out of office. Another option is the courts, which is how the state ended up with civil unions in the first place.Christie: I won't OK bill allowing NJ gay marriage
