Modern Family: Tichina Arnold’s Husband Shares Her With Gay Husbands

Actress Tichina Arnold supports marriage equality.

The 43-year-old star of TV Land’s “Happily Divorced” told Uptown magazine that she’s learned that there’s more to being married than just being in love with your mate.

“Marriage equality is not just about love. It’s about property, belongings, what you built together, what you share together and the things people don’t realize that are caught in the balance of two people not being able to have this union. The institution of marriage was built for the purposes of property, not love,” she told Karu F. Daniels for the lifestyle glossy.

Arnold, a newlywed herself, married her second husband in August 2012. The former star of “Martin” and “Everybody Hates Chris” shared that her new husband shares her with her “gay husbands.”  The New York-bred talent has even developed an interesting nickname for her “gay husbands.”

“[They] are called ‘gusbands,'” she explained. “I told my real husband, ‘Listen honey, you’re going to be happy to have him around because he’s going to do all the things that you don’t want to do.’ Now, he introduces him to his friends as my ‘gusband.’ Every woman needs one.”

In addition to starring opposite Fran Drescher on “Happily Divorced,” Arnold recently guest-starred on an episode of BET’s “Let’s Stay Together.”

    Tichina, I get that you support homosexual marriage rights but what you stated to Karu is WRONG. Marriage has been around since time immemorial, so it isnt for one to inherit property rights. Marriage is bc you love another and want to unite wit them! When the government decided to give tax breaks to married ppl and those with kids is when marriage changed and property became involved. When time began and you were married, if your wife died you took another and if your husb died you married his brother. Property was not a factor.

    Also, I saw you on ‘lets stay together’ the other night (ep 3.2 as the intimicay expert Dr Knotts..and lets just say your red mushroom wig does KNOT( lol double entendre) look good. Please dont wear it again.
