    Congratulations! Might I suggest honeymooning in Switzerland or any place above sea level O_O

    God forgive me

    Glad that Nate found love again after his BF was killed in that tsunami in Thailand. Wish them a lifetime of happiness together.

  • Billy Budd

    Wow, what a beautiful couple. Very handsome guys. If they ever want to spice things up with a friend in bed, I will be the first in the line.

    @Tackle: His previous boyfriend was killed in the 2004 Tsunami in Sri Lanka not Thailand.

    @genmes: Thanks for the correction.

    Gorgeous couple

    He couldn’t find a man closer to his own age to marry? Funny how some of the selective queens criticize Calvin Klein and Dustin Lance Black but congratulates Lil Nicky for finding a husband on Sesame Street.

    @Black Pegasus: that doesn’t really hold up when the guy is 29 instead of 18.

  • SteveWVNYC

    Congrats. Nice to see him in love and happy again.

    @Black Pegasus:

    I didn’t even realize there was that much of an age difference; not that it matters to me. Nate must be using some good moisturizer.

    I’m very happy for Nate though given the pain he suffered in losing his partner Fernando in that tsunami. His body was never recovered and so that just adds to there being no closure. I always thought he was a great guy and love his interior design sense. I’m glad he has found happiness and is now married.

    Good for them. They should hire a surrogate and have a baby, spread those good genes.

  • Boytoy

    Handsome couple.

    I give 2 to 3 years max till Nate finds a cuter and younger guy and Jeremiah finds a new guy to help advance his career/dame.

  • brianmovie

    I wonder if we’ll be reading about their divorce in two years.
