Tuesday night, Ann Romney told the Republican National Convention that she and Mitt have "a real marriage:"
"I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a storybook marriage. Well, let me tell you something. In the storybooks I read, there never were long, long rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once, and those storybooks never seemed to have chapter's called M.S. or breast cancer. A storybook marriage? Nope, not at all. What Mitt Romney and I have is a real marriage."
Last night during Ann Romney’s keynote at the Republican National Convention, she lauded her “real marriage.”
Across the country, there are thousands of legally married same-sex couples that equally understand Ann’s “deep and profound love” for her husband, and we applaud the Romneys 43 years of wedded bliss.
Lesbian and gay couples feel the same love, honor and commitment the Romneys feel for each other. Thanks to marriage equality legislation, couples in six states and D.C., are able to celebrate their own “real marriages.”
Let’s congratulate Ann and Mitt on their “real marriage” by reminding her of the love same-sex couples also share.
Because of #marriagequality, my same-sex partner & I have a #realmarriage too, @AnnDRomney #GOP2012 @hrc
