RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) - While the national awaits the U.S. Supreme Court rulings on various same-sex marriage cases it is hearing, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell said same-sex marriage should not be legal in Virginia.

Appearing on his Ask the Governor radio show Thursday morning, Gov. McDonnell said he believed civil unions could be a possibility in Virginia under current law.

"I haven't supported those [civil unions] in the past because I thought that the contract laws, the freedom to contract in Virginia, was broad enough to cover any multitude of those of other kinds of arrangements" he explained.
