With the Maryland House of Delegates set to vote on Friday whether to allow same-sex couples to marry, a Baltimore Ravens linebacker decided to weigh in on the subject.

Brendon Ayanbadejo, who has written about his support for gay marriage before, teammed up with Equality Maryland and posted a video voicing his opinion on love and marriage.

"This should not be a subjective issue. Gay and lesbian couples want to marry for similar reasons as we all do: love and commitment," Ayanbadejo said. "It's time to allow them the opportunity to build a family through marriage. It's a matter of fairness. This is why I'm asking Marylanders to join me in supporting marriage equality for same-sex couples."
