'Modern Family's' Jesse Tyler Ferguson weds

Jesse Tyler Ferguson's character on "Modern Family" isn't married yet - but Ferguson is.

The actor, who plays Mitchell Pritchett on the hit ABC show, married boyfriend
Justin Mikita in New York City on Saturday, his publicist confirmed.

The actor and the lawyer have been outspoken advocates for same-sex marriage and founded Tie The Knot, an organization which raises funds to aid marriage equality. Playwright Tony Kushner officiated at their ceremony.

Ferguson tweeted his happiness on Sunday:

Now it remains to be seen if Ferguson's character on "Modern Family" will marry his longtime partner, Cam Tucker, played by Eric Stonestreet. Fingers crossed!

    Wow rednecks are so quick to judge and condem others, but as soon as anyone argues with them they explode into a tea party rage and start saying that we are intolerant. YOU STARTED IT WITH YOUR OWN INTOLERANCE. If you got nothing nice to say – FCUK OFF.

    Tired of the know it alls that think you don't choose your actions based on environment and upbringing. Gay is choice and stop being so intolerant of those who are intolerant, it makes you people look like fools who claim to be better. Quite pathetic actually so go kick rocks. You are not the author of morality and mores. Just like alcoholism is BS its a choice to dump too much alcohol down your throat. Take responsibility for being society's abominations. Most of us do not agree but the vocal minority leads you to believe so.

    • M.A.P.

      You don't make sense. If being gay is a choice like you say, why do some people have urges for gay se-x and others not? You are basically just saying gay people should deny thweir natural se-xual urges because it makes YOU somehow feel uncomfortable (most likely because YOU are gay or bi yourself). Thanks for coming out on the CNN MArquee blog -(why is a hetero man on an entertainment blog in the first place?).

      Figures M.A.P. like so many others who can't control their deviant behaviors and desires results to name calling on message boards. You're a sad insecure little man who cant take it when those who simply call BS on your ways and who do not agree. We should as a country condemn those who think gayness is one bit acceptable. Too much PC nonsense ruining the nation.

      Oh and calling me a "sad insecure little man" isn't name calling? You are a pathetic excuse for a human being and I hope you don't have long to live.

      Just to clarify something – "those who simply call BS on your ways". Can you even explain what this sentence means? Calling BS on my ways? What do you mean calling bullsh!t on someone's "ways". You are seriously in Grade school so this convo ends now. Go to bed kid.

    Being gay is so gross and yes it is a choice. You can choose not to act on it like violent acts that all think but normal people don't act on. It's called self control and doing whats right. The anything goes mentality of humanity is dangerous. You can't pick and choose logic but most do.

      So you are admitting you have h0m0se-xual thought then Mr Wallpaper? You just don't "act" ion them? That IS what you just said – read what you wrote. If you don't want to ACT on your NATURAL urges then that's a choice, yes. But you are still gay.

      Disagreement doesn't make a person a bigot. Wanting to deny equal rights is what makes you a bigot.

    To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson: "If a man marries another man, it neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg."

    If Jefferson were alive today, he would be pro gay marriage.

      Perversion?? You are the sicko with a sick viewpoint of this world. YOU CLEARLY ARE "PERVERTED" ENOUGH TO CLICK THE ARTICLE AND MAKE A POINT TO WRITE ABOUT IT. WHATS EATING YOU GILBERT GRAPE? YOUR INSECURITIES? DON'T FORGET TO DELETE THE GAY PORN AND THE REST OF YOUR DISCREETNESS FROM YOUR HISTORY BEFORE YOUR WIFE / GF SEES IT. These are two human beings who live their lives morally and respectfully. Keep your mouth shut if you know whats good for you. Pathetic loser. Congratulations on being single and alone ...and probably fooling around with guys "discreetly" I know plenty of jerks like you. TAKE A HIKE. LOSER.

      One is an actor, one is a lawyer, so they both have money. As to your idea that one is a 3 and one is a 6, well, that is just your opinion. But, I guess it's tough to tell for someone like you, stuck forever in zero land.
