In a recent interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) reaffirmed his belief in traditional marriage. Paul also stated that defining same-sex unions as marriages offended many, including himself. He instead advocated for contracts between adults stating:
Well I’m for traditional marriage. I think marriage is between a man and a woman. Ultimately, we could have fixed this a long time ago if we just allowed contracts between adults. We didn’t have to call it marriage, which offends myself and a lot of people. But I think having competing contracts that would give them equivalency before the law would have solved a lot of these problems, and it may be where we’re still headed.
