The New Jersey State Senate is expected to vote on a bill Monday that would legalize same-sex marriage.

The state assembly will then take up the issue on Thursday.

Democratic lawmakers believe they have enough votes to pass a bill.

However, Governor Christie has vowed to veto such a measure if it reaches his desk.

Christie has proposed bringing the issue directly to the voters instead, in a statewide referendum.
