Financial guru Suze Orman and New York
Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney discussed GOP opposition to gay marriage
during an appearance on MSNBC.
Maloney, a freshman Democratic
congressman, is raising three children with his partner of 20 years,
“What really makes me so sad is that
gay people understand very well that when they get married that is a
legal, legal document,” Orman told host Alex Wagner. “And when
you get married, that means if you don't want to stay together
anymore, then you are going to have to go through a serious divorce.
So this thing about two or three people are going to get married,
it's going to do this, it's going to do that, is just so ridiculous.
You get married because you love one another.”
“I really think right now, the
Republicans and many of the people that are still trying to say that
they're against it, they don't really know what to do, because they
know for once they are in the minority on this issue.”
Maloney said that he believes more
Republicans are likely to embrace marriage equality as greater
numbers of voters drop their opposition. (The video is embedded on
