Lily And Jane Consider Gay Marriage After 4+ Decades As Life Partners

The legendary Oscar nominated Lily Tomlin and her life partner of 42 years Jane Wagner are considering marriage now that gay marriage is legal in California.

In the “we have gay marriage news” department, what can I say about Lily Tomlin that hasn’t been said before? The Oscar nominated comic actress is 73 years old, and in my humble opinion, she’s  a living legend. Consider that Lily has won a Golden Globe Award, a Grammy Award, 5 Primetime Emmy Awards, 2 Tony Awards, the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, 2 Peabody Awards, and the list goes on and on.

Lily is a lesbian who never hid her sexuality, and never felt the need to come out. She’s been with her life partner Jane Wagner for 42 years!  Jane Wagner is an award winning comedy writer, and has won multiple Emmy and Tony Awards, as a writer.

Reporter Marc Malkin wrote the story for E! News, as Lily revealed to him  that she and Jane are thinking about getting married, after spending more than 4 decades together as partners.
We’re thinking maybe we’ll get married. No rings, no bridal dresses. Maybe we’ll be dressed like chickens. You don’t really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice. Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very, very happy about it. 
I know what a good heart she has, and how empathetic she is with all kinds of people and issues. She’s so brilliant on top of it that she can voice these things. And she’s as funny as she can possibly be. She makes me laugh.
Bravo and congratulations Lily and Jane! Thanks for making us laugh for all of these years, and I wish you all the best.


PS: I’d like to ask the Kennedy Center Honors producers why Lily hasn’t been honored yet? (I’d also like to know why Joan Rivers hasn’t been honored.)
