MILLBURN, NJ - Township residents Shayne Austin Miller and Christopher Haught appeared at Millburn Town Hall on Tuesday morning to apply for the township’s first marriage license issued to a same-sex couple. The couple had a civil union ceremony in August 2007. 

“Today is an exciting day for us and for thousands of committed gay and lesbian couples in New Jersey,” said Miller, who also serves as director of Press and Public Relations for Millburn’s Paper Mill Playhouse. “The separate, but not equal status of civil unions is now behind us and we are thrilled to have the same benefits, rights and responsibilities of every other married couple in New Jersey.”

The couple plans to wed before a judge in the next few weeks and celebrate with family and friends in Millburn.
