Suze Orman Talks Gay Marriage

The CNBC host dedicates her weekend show to issues of marriage equality

Financial whiz Suze Orman has openly talked about her own being gay – and what that means when it comes to money, assets and estates with her longtime partner. But in honor of Gay Pride, perhaps, Orman dedicated her entire Saturday episode of The Suze Orman Show to issues related to couples and same-sex marriage.

“Many of you out there have the ability to get married, have the ability to really share in what that feels like, emotionally as well as financially speaking. But here I sit in front of you, a 61-year-old woman, who has been gay my entire life, who has been in a committed relationship for the past 12 years, and I will die in this relationship a woman who pays more taxes than most, that is a contributing member to the economy in more ways than most, yet, I am not treated equally,” she said.
