Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney courted Latino voters on Wednesday during an appearance at a forum broadcast on the Spanish-language Univision channel.

Held at the University of Miami in Florida, Romney addressed a number of campaign issues, including same-sex marriage.

Asked what Romney's advice would be if he discovered one his children were gay, Romney, who supports a constitutional amendment banning marriage equality, said he would be surprised since each of his five sons are married.

However, talking about his 18 grandchildren, Romney said he would want them to be happy.

"Individuals should be able to pursue a relationship of love and respect and raise a family as they choose," Romney said, adding that he would like the term marriage to continue to be associated between one man and one woman.

Romney said that definition of marriage would not stop a same-sex couple from having a domestic relationship with certain benefits.
