Newt Gingrich landed in hot water Thursday when his ex-wife Marianne Gingrich revealed on "Nightline" that Newt had once asked her for an open marriage during their 19-year partnership. She said that he wanted to remain married to her while continuing to cheat with his now-wife, Callista Gingrich.
In the interview, set to air Thursday at 11:35pm EST, Marianne, who split from Newt in 1999, says she refused his request, adding: " That is not a marriage."
Given the GOP hopeful's conservative stance on marriage -- in September he said that marriage is between a man and a woman and called gay marriage a "temporary aberration" -- we asked the Twitterverse if they agree with the candidate's ex-wife. Overwhelmingly, they said yes.
