Susan Mikula Wedding, partner
Susan knew from the beginning of her teenage years that she was a lesbian. She waited for the woman of her dreams and finally met Rachel Maddow around 1999. Susan and Rachel first met when Susan had hired Rachel for some yard work. Rachel was doing odd jobs to get her by during her doctoral dissertation, and Susan needed someone to clean her yard when they both found each other. They went on several dates as they started to like each other and eventually fell in love. This couple resides in a pre–Civil War farmhouse in Western Massachusetts and sometimes in the West Village apartment in New York City. They often stay in their Massachusetts home on weekends and have tried hard at maintaining the original form of the building for the sake of history.
Although Susan and Rachel have been in a relationship for so long, they aren't looking forward to a wedding as Rachel said in one interview how she feels that gay people not being able to get married for generations, forever, meant that they came up with alternative ways of recognizing relationships. She added how she worries that if everybody has access to the same institutions, they will lose the creativity of subcultures having to make it on their own.
As of now, Susan and Rachel are living a blissful life as longtime partners.
