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, Randy Forke.

“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 this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
