Rachel's wife has COVID, was in grave danger, according to Rachel

Just watched Rachel give an impassioned speech to others to "move heaven and earth to avoid getting Covid". "It may not be you who gets it; it may be the person you love most in the world". And "if you get sick, there's no hospital that can take you"

Apparently there was a point that they thought Rachel's SO (Susan) wouldn't survive. Sounds like she's now recovering, but they've been separated during Rachel's absence from her show while in quarantine. It's heartbreaking how much this has clearly affected her.

Powerful message.

I've only found this: 'Mikula is the longtime partner of current MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow.' https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Mikula

18. All I know is that Rachel has called her her "wife" on her show several times.

That's why I assume they're married.

20. Since your post, I've been searching the web, and I don't see where they ever had a legal ceremony

to get married.

I remember her talking about same sex marriage on her program one time as a legal issue, and I'm surprised not to find confirmation of a ceremony.

Maybe they didn't tie the knot, and they're just partners.
