Rosie O'Donnell Will Wait For Marriage

June 6, 2008 by dino

Lesbian actress ROSIE O’DONNELL will wait until same-sex marriages are legalised throughout the U.S. before she weds her partner.

O’Donnell and her longtime partner, Kelli Carpenter, married four years ago when the mayor of San Francisco allowed same-sex marriages. But the California Supreme Court later declared the marriage invalid.

Last month (May08), California state authorities lifted the ban on same-sex marriage, but O’Donnell is reluctant to walk up the aisle.

She says, “(We’re) going to wait until it’s legal everywhere, because otherwise, I said to Kelli, we’ll be going around touring the country on the marriage tour every state by state.

“Once it gets to be at the federal level, once every state recognises the marriages of every other state, I think that’ll be the time we would do it.”
