Edie Windsor On The “Magic” Of Marriage

windsor082

The fact is, marriage is this magic thing. I mean forget all the financial stuff — marriage … symbolizes commitment and love like nothing else in the world. And it’s known all over the world. I mean, wherever you go, if you’re married, that means something to people, and it meant a difference in feeling the next day. And I’ve asked everybody since who gets married after long-term relationships, ‘Did it feel different the next day?’ and the answer is always ‘Yes, absolutely.'”

    I’ve decided that Cloris Leachman should play the part of Edie in the SCOTUS DOMA movie
