Dylan Ratigan Is Married With Beautiful Wife & Gay - Of The Other Kind
American journalist, Dylan Ratigan is the prominent host of MSNBC’s The Dylan Ratigan Show and political commentator for The Young Turks.
While achieving success in the industry, he was once a blessed man with a supporting wife whom he claimed as the ultimate support of his life and career. The author had - and continues to have - many great things to talk about his ex-wife; his former wife changed his life.
Gay Talks Amid Ex-Wife; Married Life Changed Him
The former host of The Dylan Ratigan Show, Dylan Ratigan is a staunch supporter of gay marriage, who extensively reported on the same-sex marriage which was enacted by the former President Barack Obama back in 2012.
Speaking about gay rights, however, does not enlist his name on the gay people though.
Many might not know, but Dylan once shared a fulfilling married life with his wife, Carlota. Although the details of their wedding remain hazy, the duo tied the knot in December 2016.
They even celebrated their first wedding anniversary together. On the first wedding anniversary, Dylan took to twitter conveying a long anniversary message wishing his then-wife and expressing his love and feelings towards her. He quoted:-
"I know for a fact that our strength together as a team in combination is the most powerful, most positive, most creative combining I have ever experienced in this world."
He further stated that his every breath sent the attachment to his former wife with immense gratitude and respect. Also, he professed his gratefulness for her support and credited for her for his successful career
"I loved you and still, love you like no other person ever in the history of this planet Carlota and you have changed my life forever."
He then took to Twitter on 31st December 2017 - the day they were pronounced as husband and wife - with the glimpse of the picture as the 1st-anniversary gift.

Dylan, who stands at the height of 6'2", seemed to be so content into his family life with his then-Spanish wife that he usually gushed that his ex-wife made him the man he is today.
On his former wife's birthday, he tweeted wishing her birthday gushing that she had completely changed his life from the day she had entered into his life. He tweeted:-
"To my wife, Carlota..... Feliz Cumpleanos....You have permanently changed who I am as a person....Every feeling that I feel, every thought that I think, every decision that I make in every moment of every day is changed forever because you came into my life..."
While he kept gushing about his then-spouse on Twitter, he didn't make public appearances with her.
Before Carlota, he was in a serious relationship with the singer-songwriter Aprille Goodman. Ironically enough, Dylan and Aprille had also made their public appearance at "The 4th Annual CNBC Executive Leadership Awards" in 2008.
Divorce From His Wife
Was there a reason for Dylan to never show off his wife on the public? Nobody will know the answer to the question now that he and his former life partner are no longer together.
The announcement, however, couldn't be more tragic as it happened two days before Valentine's Day.
On 12th February 2019, after less than three years of marriage later, the veteran journo broke the news of their divorce. Calling the decision amicable, he thanked Carlota for making the man that he had become.

No sooner had Dylan delivered the sad news, a plethora of fans consoled the grief-ridden journo with supportive messages.
