FILE - In this Dec. 30, 2006, file photo, Mary Cheney, daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney, left, and her partner Heather Poe, attend the funeral of former President Gerald R. Ford in the Capitol Rotunda on Capitol Hill in Washington. The dispute roiling one of the most prominent families in the Republican Party highlights a central factor in the growing acceptance of legal same-sex marriage: Knowing someone who’s gay. Mary Cheney is married to a woman and also the daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney and sister to Liz Cheney, who is running for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate from Wyoming. Mary’s father has said he supports legal gay marriage in states where it is recognized. Since mounting her bid, Liz Cheney has said she opposes gay marriage.
