LOS ANGELES - George Takei and his longtime partner, Brad Altman, have agreed to live long and prosper together.

Takei, 71, and Altman, 54, were married Sunday in a multicultural ceremony at the Japanese American National Museum that featured a Buddhist priest, Native American wedding bands, a Japanese Koto harp and a bagpipe procession.

The couple, both clad in white dinner jackets with black pants, made a grand entrance to the tune of "One Singular Sensation" from the Broadway musical "A Chorus Line." They stepped into a circle of yellow roses and lilies, where they shared a traditional Japanese tea ceremony and were wed by a Buddhist priest.

"I vow to care for you as you've cared for me ... and to love you as my husband and the only man in my life," Takei said as he held Altman's hands.

The priest then pronounced them "spouses for life." A bagpiper played as the newlyweds walked out, followed by friends, family and a few members of the press.

Takei said he and Altman chose to make their wedding public — and have been outspoken gay-rights advocates for years — for the sake of democracy.

LMAO at the people trying to bring this down. Why is it sad because he married someone he loves? Just because you don't like it doesn't make it sad. LOL at you.

Here is one good reason I find it sad.  It is wrong, period.  Just because something makes us feel good doesn't make it right.
Just ask the CDC.

So, basically what you're saying is that as long as they protect themselves against STDs, it's fine.

No?

So if your sexual partner had herpes, it would be wrong to have sex with her? Or would it
be OK in your book because you used protection?

Would it be sad if you had protected sex with this person in a monogamous relationship?

You can spin it however you like, Joe. But the reality is that the HIV epidemic in America began in the gay community.

Actually, it didn't begin in the gay community. It was more prevalent in the gay community and with
people getting blood transfusions and with drug users.

There were straight couples who contracted HIV through anal sex with partners of the opposite sex. So, is
that kind of anal sex wrong too, Cyber?
