Despite the fact that the couple has been together for almost two decades, the pair has, however, not decided to walk down the aisle together.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Rachel confessed that why they aren't in too much pressure to get married.
“I feel that gay people not being able to get married for generations, forever, meant that we came up with alternative ways of recognizing relationships. And I worry that if everybody has access to the same institutions that we lose the creativity of subcultures having to make it on their own. And I like gay culture.”
Well, this doesn't mean that Maddow and Mikula are against lesbian and gay marriages, they are just not ready yet.
