Financial whiz Suze Orman devotes an upcoming episode of her show to the financial ramifications for gay couples who cannot get married.

The 61-year-old Orman gets personal in introducing the topic, saying she pays more taxes than most yet cannot legally marry her longterm partner Kathy Travis, whom she often refers to simply as KT.

“Here I sit in front of you, a 61-year-old woman who has been gay my entire life. Who has been in a committed relationship for the past 12 years, and I will die in this relationship. A woman who pays more taxes than most, that is a contributing member of the economy in more ways than most. Yet I am not treated equally. So I am asking all of you to join in with this fight, so to speak, we have. Marriage equality, the ability to get married should be a right for every single person in the United States of America, regardless of their sexual orientation,” Orman told viewers.

Orman and Travis married in 2010 in South Africa. However, their marriage is only recognized in New York, one of three states where the couple resides, the other two being Florida and California.

The episode, simply titled Marriage Equality, premieres Saturday at 9PM on cabler CNBC.
