Max Mutchnick, a creator and executive producer of TV's Will & Grace, got married to lawyer Erik Hyman on Oct. 25 in Beverly Hills.
“We wanted to be a part of the wave of same-sex couples getting married before the election,” Mutchnick told The New York Times.
The couple have been together for two years. They moved in together a week after meeting and have never spent a night apart since.
Mutchnick told The Times that Hyman is the most intelligent and confident man he’s ever met, and the only one he’s met who can withstand his insecurities and histrionics.
Hyman said he fell hard for Mutchnick's passion, charm and humor.
The couple have two daughters, who were born to a surrogate.
California voters ended same-sex marriage in the state Nov. 4, amending the state constitution to say, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”
Gay groups have filed suit to block the amendment from taking effect. At press time, the state Supreme Court had not ruled on the case, and county officials had stopped issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
