David Hyde Pierce is a Married Man

David Hyde Pierce is a Married Man

Former Frasier star David Hyde Pierce reveals that he wed longtime love Brian Hargrove on October 24th, 2008.

The 50-year-old actor shared the happy news on The View after having been together for 25 years. David and Brian tied the knot a few weeks before California’s Proposition 8 was passed, which banned same-sex marriage. The state’s Supreme Court ruled this week that his marriage (along with 18,000 others) is still legal but upheld the ban for future couples.

“[It's like] oh great, I made the cut!” David said sarcastically.

He also went on to say that one’s sexuality is a personal matter. “What you choose to talk about is a personal decision,” David said. “I’m not a big fan [of outing celebrities].”

    Congratulations to David and Brian. And for those against gay marriage, don’t you think 25 years together and marrying as soon as leagally possible speaks volumes? As opposed to say, JLo, Britney Spears, Larry King, Liz Taylor, Newt Gingrich, etc. who’ve made a mockery out of the institution? I for one am neutral on the whole idea or marriage, but I can’t understand denying two gay consenting adults the same right as hetero couples. Just a thought.

    Ten years from now this subject will be a big yawn and our grandkids will wonder what the fuss was all about. I wish everyone would get over it and move on.

    And DHP and his beloved will be celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary.

    Congratulations guys!

    Like him as an actor, don’t care if he’s married. That doesn’t come under my need to know.

    25 years together. . . wow, that’s gotta be love.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
    If you don’t want gay people to marry, that’s your opinion and you must have your reasons and I respect you and your reasons.
    If you believe marriage should be for everyone regarless their sexual orientation, that’s cool too.
    I believe in being happy. Jusr do whatever makes you happy. Live your life with meaning. Alone, with a same sex partner, with opposite sex partner, with your dog, with your blanket. . .
    VIVA LA VIDA!!!

    good god! this is the 21st century not the dark ages. these two men have been together 25 years, that’s longer than most straight couples who get married. don’t believe me; just look at the divorce rates. i admire their committment to each other and say all power to them

    Unbelievable how the world is turning to. Save it for themselves. Why do they need to make it in public and even want the law to pass? Ridiculous.
    Marriage means a MAN and a WOMAN, period.

    2009 Says:

    @ michelle. Why do they want the law passed?? Are you that thick? They want it passed so they can be recognized just as any other loving hetrosexual couple is. They want to be legally wed, just like anyone else & why shouldn’t they. It is the 21st century, what 2 consenting adults do sexually or otherwise is no-one elses business. As to why they want to make it public? He waited a very long time, kept it private, perhaps now he feels he can help make give the cause more publicity using his celbrity profile. Congrats David, you are obviously very happy.

    Love & equal rights for all

    @Erin:

    Hey, I’m a woman married to a man for 27 years. Ha Ha I beat them! My parents married 51 years, all three of my brothers married (to womren) 23, 16 & 13 years. Work with a gay woman who was in a committed relationship with kids and all, they split. So the mockery thing seems to be by celebs?

    Just remember, man + woman = marriage. You can have domestic partnership if you wish.

    Congratulations to you and your family. That really is wonderful.
    And congratulations to DHP and his spouse. Everyone deserves to be happy. Period. I find your last statement offensive – each person should have the right to choose what is right for him or her and do what makes them happy, as long, of course, as they hurt no one. DHP and his spouse and millions like them are no different.

    Live and let live.
