OKLAHOMA CITY - Presumed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney reaffirmed his view Wednesday during an Oklahoma City campaign stop that marriage is between a man and a woman.
"I have the same view on marriage that I had when I was governor and that I've expressed many times - I believe marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman," Romney said when asked by reporters about President Barack Obama's support earlier in the day for gay marriages.
Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, said states are able to make decisions on domestic partner benefits.
"My view is that marriage itself is a relationship between a man and a woman and that's my own preference," said Romney, 65. "I know other people have differing views. This is a very tender and sensitive topic as are many social issues. But I have the same view that I've had since, well, since running for office."
