When asked her thoughts on marriage, Joan Rivers responded, "It's wonderful. It really gives you someone who’s got your back. It really gives you something you don’t have when you just live with someone. It’s that great, final commitment, and it’s amazing – when it’s a good marriage. And when it’s a bad marriage, as I’ve always joked, I say, 'Why shouldn’t the gays be allowed to suffer the same as the straights?' There is nothing like saying, 'I commit to you.'" [Link]
