New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed an executive order to allow couples to get married using video-conferencing technology.
The order amends the in-person requirements for couples to obtain a marriage license.
The order still requires that a marriage or civil union be solemnized in the physical presence of an officiant and two witnesses, but it can be satisfied through the use of live audio-visual technology, according to a statement.
The order will take effect Monday, May 4.
