Jim Nabors AKA Gomer Pyle Marries Long-Time, Same Sex Partner At Age 82
- Surprise, surprise, surprise! Gomer Pyle finally got married at age 82–or at least his alter-ego, Jim Nabors, did.
In a stereotype-breaking scenario, Nabors and his partner of 38 years, Stan Cadwallader, flew to Washington shortly after same-sex marriage was legalized there and tied the knot. The fact that their relationship is a show-business one, that it has spanned almost four decades, that they married as soon as it was possible, and that Mr. Cadwallader is a former Honolulu firefighter all defy typical preconceptions of such a longtime union.
