1. We could ask if she's registered anywhere.

2. No, and believe it or not she's pretty ambivalent about ssm.

She's been with her girlfriend Susan Mikula for 13 years.

7. It could be that she's been with her partner for so long

She considers her partner's mother her mother-in-law whether they are married or not. I'm just speculating though.

3. not sure, but many couples, especially long time couples refer to

their boyfriend/girlfriend's family in that way even if they aren't married.

4. I found an old DU thread ...


... January 2011 Maddow used the phrase mother-in-law back then too.

5. I think Howard Stern asked her....

....if she planned to marry, and she said no. Forgot the reason.
