Yes. The state of New Jersey began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples on October 21, 2013.

Currently there are also domestic partnerships and civil unions available within New Jersey. A civil union provides more rights than a domestic partnership. People in civil unions have all the same state benefits as married couples, but none of the federal benefits.
