New Yorkers against marriage

A NY Times blog reports:
It is worth pointing out that the two most prominent politicians in the successful campaign to legalize same-sex marriage in New York want nothing to do with marriage. For themselves, anyway.

Both of them, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, have generally treated matrimony as if it were the worst idea since the Edsel. Mr. Bloomberg is so disenchanted that he said soon after taking office in 2002 that he would abjure the mayoral right to officiate at weddings. ...

All the same, she added, “in coming weeks we’re going to be reading and parsing through everything” to understand the new law’s implications for divorce. ... Let’s suppose, Ms. Hindin said, that one woman in a lesbian marriage has a baby, through whatever means. If the other woman does not legally adopt the child, there may be questions about her rights and obligations to that child should the marriage end.
Either way, the child is likely to be growing up without a father.

Just because you are not experiencing marriage, doesn't mean that you can't have a strong opinion and drive to make things change on things you advocate for.
