Former first lady Laura Bush thinks gay marriage is coming, and, despite her husband’s objection, she supports it. “When couples are committed to each other and love each other they ought to have the same sort of rights that everyone has,” Bush told Larry King last week on CNN.

Former President George W. Bush’s wife said he’s like many people who have trouble coming to terms with gay marriage because “it’s a real reversal for them — they see marriage as traditionally between a man and a woman.”

“I also think it’s a generational thing,” she added.

Asked if gay marriage will be accepted some day, Bush said, “It will come, I think.”
