(Newser) – Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy opposes gay marriage—but his wife feels otherwise. With the country considering a bill to legalize same-sex marriage and adoption, Bruni tells France's Vogue that she's "rather in favor because I have a lot of friends—men and women—who are in this situation and I see nothing unstable or perverse in families with gay parents," the AP reports. As for her husband, he's "opposed for reasons linked to his political vocation, because he sees people as groups of thousands rather than people we know personally."
