Gomer makes it legal
Stop the presses, sir?
No, Johnson. I don't think that'll be necessary...

Actor Jim Nabors says marrying his longtime male partner doesn’t change anything about their relationship — he just wanted it to be formally acknowledged.

‘‘I just wanted it legal,’’ the 82-year-old actor best known as Gomer Pyle in ‘‘The Andy Griffith Show’’ told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Nabors married 64-year-old Stan Cadwallader in Seattle on Jan. 15. Nabors says they have been partners for 38 years. The couple met in 1975 when Cadwallader was a Honolulu firefighter.

Nabors said they flew from Honolulu just for the short ceremony and were married in a hotel room by a judge friend who drove up from Olympia, Wash.
