Brad Pitt Says He Can’t Wait Any Longer, Despite Pledge to Wait for Marriage Equality
You probably don’t need reminding that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie famously pledged to postpone their wedding day until LGBT Americans were able to legally marry. Hurrah! A trophy! LGBT Allies of the year! Etc.
But what’s this?
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.” Has he asked Jolie to marry him? “I’m not going to go any further,” says Pitt. “But to be in love with someone and be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous.”
I’d lick to nip any and all cussing or condemning this incredible ally in the bud right from the start here. Few stars of Brad’s caliber have dared to stand with our community like he has.
But I have to ask, does Brad’s wavering promise to wait until gays and lesbians can wed bum you out? Is his promise to millions of Americans enduring marriage discrimination trumped by his children’s wishes for their parents?
Sound off in the comments. We really want to hear how you feel.
