There were apparently no exclamations of “Shazam!” or “Golly!”— just a simple exchange of rings in front of a judge in a Seattle hotel room, after which Jim Nabors, the star of television’s “Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.,” married Stan Cadwallader, his partner of 38 years, according to a report by a Hawaiian television news station.

Hawaii News Now of Honolulu reported that Mr. Nabors, 82, the actor and singer, who now lives in Hawaii, and Mr. Cadwallader, 64, who works with him, were married on Jan. 15 at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle. The couple, who traveled to Seattle a few weeks after same-sex marriages became legal in Washington State, were wed in a private ceremony witnessed by friends who live near Mr. Nabors and Mr. Cadwallader, Hawaii News Now said.

Mr. Nabors declined an on-camera interview with Hawaii News Now, but was quoted in a telephone interview with the news program as saying that he and Mr. Cadwallader “had no rights as a couple” before they were married,“yet when you’ve been together 38 years, I think something’s got to happen there, you’ve got to solidify something.” Mr. Nabors added,“And at my age, it’s probably the best thing to do.”

A public records search showed that Mr. Nabors and Mr. Cadwallader were issued a marriage certificate in Washington’s Thurston County on Dec. 22.

Mr. Nabors, who was born and raised in Sylacauga, Ala., originated the character of the hapless but loveable gas-station attendant Gomer Pyle on “The Andy Griffith Show,” and reprised the role in five seasons of “Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.”(on which the goofball character was perpetually making trouble for his military superiors). Mr. Nabors also appeared on “The Carol Burnett Show,”“The Muppet Show,” and his own variety series,“The Jim Nabors Hour.”

Hawaii News Now said Mr. Nabors met Mr. Cadwallader, a former firefighter in Honolulu, in 1975.

The news program quoted Mr. Nabors as saying that though he had always been open about his sexuality to co-workers in the entertainment industry, he did not plan to get involved in the national debate over gay marriage.

“I haven’t ever made a public spectacle of it,” Mr. Nabors said, according to Hawaii News Now.“Well, I’ve known since I was a child, so, come on. It’s not that kind of a thing. I’ve never made a huge secret of it at all.”

He added:“My friend and I, my partner, we went through all of this 38 years ago. So I mean, we made our vows and that was it. It was to each other, but nevertheless, we were a couple.”

Sad? A marriage is a happy occassion. I'm happy that Nabors was able to find the love of his life and finally make it legal.

They've been together 38 years and haven't made a big deal out of it. 38 years of happiness with your soul partner is something to be CELEBRATED, not called "sad".

Why can't you and your other right wing aliases just practice acceptance instead of trying to force your viewso n the rest of the world?

The only thing sad here is your views.

Why are my views of less value than yours or those whom support gay marriage? Who are you and those who support gay marriage to tell me what I should or should not accept? Bull shit, It is a sad day, in my opinion and I have not only a right to feel that way, but a right to state it openly and without fear of reprisal! I tired of left wingers trying to paint me into some homophobic corner and pretend they have the high road. Acceptance, I don't have to accept them, this is America, and I have the right not to accept them and there is nothing you guilt ridden liberal can do about it! SAD DAY

No, it is SAD.

I always knew that there was something GOOFY about Jim Nabors, and now I know WHY.

I hope they never let him sing ever again at the Indy 500.

He has been given FAR MORE attention and accolades than his "talents" deserve, and he should just RETIRE and GO AWAY.

So Jimmy baby, have a nice "honeymoon", retire to your multimillion dollar mansion, and live a nice happy life in RETIREMENT, with your "husband". I don't care to know ANYTHING else about you, EVER.

I get tears in my eyes when I think of Gomer finally enjoying the same wedded bliss that my Slewsie from Seattle and I are enjoying. Life is good.

I remember when the news got out that Rock Hudson had AIDS and was homosexual. A friend of my mother's was disappointed because back in the day she really thought he was something to be desired. I told her that Gomer Pyle was also a member of that team. Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

At least you admit you are a bigot. And you are right, there is no law against being an antiamerican bigot like you and Crassus.

Upon further reflection:

Did I have a point? No

Was it clever? No

Sorry! But I do hate America!

Now you are doing the same thing my Slewsie does with posting the same thing on multiple threads. Why do you do that? Can't you think of anything original to say?
