- Known as the “New Jersey Marriage Amendment,” this legislation may appear on the 4 November 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure, upon voter approval, would define marriage as the union between one man and one woman. This would effectively end the currently legal same-sex marriages in New Jersey.
