Same-sex marriage: A mother-daughter talk

Updated

The subject of same-sex marriage has been all over the news recently with the Supreme Court taking up hearing the oral arguments of Prop 8 and DOMA. While a decision from the High Court is not expected until June, Cycle co-host Krystal Ball addressed the high profile issue with her five-year-old daughter, Ella. 

Ella explains who a person can and can’t marry and how in New York a person can marry anyone they love. “Girls can marry girls and boys can marry boys in New York and a girl can marry a boy in New York too,” Ella told Krystal. 

 

“And that’s good because you want people to be able to marry who they’re in love with, right?” Ball asked Ella.

 

“Yeah!” Ella replied.

 

Both agreed that all states should legalized same-sex marriage. “That’s Crazy!” Ella exclaimed  to the notion that a state won’t allow someone to marry whomever they want.
