Romney: 'Marriage is Between a Man and a Woman'

Wednesday, 09 May 2012 05:14 PM

Mitt Romney unequivocally reaffirmed his belief that marriage is between a man and a woman but acknowledged that gay marriage is a “very tender and sensitive” topic.

The putative GOP presidential candidate made his comments in response to questions from reporters in Oklahoma City, Okla., following the announcement by President Barack Obama that he now supports gay marriage.

"I have the same view on marriage that I had when I was governor, and that I've expressed many times, and that marriage is between a man and a woman,” Romney said.

“States are able to make decisions with regards to domestic partnership benefits such as hospital visitation rights, benefits and so forth of various kinds can be determined state by state but my view is that marriage itself is a relationship between a man and woman and that’s my own preference,” he added.

“I know other people have differing views. This is a very tender and sensitive topic as are many social issues but I have the same view that I’ve had since well since running for office.”
