Monogamous Same-Sex Marriage In The City? It just doesn’t have the same ring to it, but regardless, we are happy to hear that Cynthia Nixon and long time girlfriend Christine Marinoni have finally tied the knot.
People Magazine has reported that the two wed this past Sunday in New York.
The pair, who let’s be honest could be sisters, have been engaged since 2009 after Marinoni, an education activist (whatever that means), proposed to Nixon after 6 years together at a rally for same-sex marriage.
The two attribute the long engagement to New York’s ban on same-sex marriage, that was lifted just this last summer.
Though the couple has been happy to take it slow when it comes to making it official, Nixon (possibly taking a cue from her SATC character Miranda) was quick to hook up with Marinoni shortly after ending her 16 year relationship to (male) photographer Danny Mozes.
Nixon and Mozes had two children together and Marinoni gave birth to their first child together early last year.
Details on the ceremony have yet to be released, but it’s safe to assume that Marinoni was the one wearing pants. Congratulations to the happy couple!
