As some of you might remember, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have refused to get married, saying that they wouldn’t get married until gay marriage was finally passed in the states. But of course, their six kids don’t really understand that because kids usually have a hard time understanding why two people who love each other can’t get married. So now Brad and Angelina are now saying that they’re getting a little antsy to get married. People reports:
“I’m not going to go any further,” says the actor, who has been nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for Moneyball. “[But] it means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.” Jolie, too, has addressed the subject of marriage as it relates to the couple’s six children: “They have asked, yeah, because … people get married in the movies,” Jolie told Nightline in an interview that aired last month.
It’s a shame that Brangelina’s kids have to see all these other people getting married while wondering why their parents can’t get married, but think about it: how many kids out there have gay parents and have to wonder every day why their parents can’t get married? America, do the right thing: pass marriage equality so that Brangelina’s super happy shiny brigade of kids can finally watch their parents get married. And also because LGBT people deserve the same rights and respects as anyone else, just like Brangelina.
