'Family Ties' star Meredith Baxter marries Nancy Locke

By Ashleigh Nicole,

Remember Meredith Baxter from Family Ties? Well after only recently ‘coming out’ in 2009, Baxter married Nancy Locke. The two women had been in a seven-year relationship prior to tying the knot and had been dating for 4 years when she came out on the Today Show.

Baxter and Locke shared a small, private wedding ceremony in L.A. on Dec. 8. The only people in attendance were family and friends. Baxter told People, "Now I understand why marriage caught on!" Baxter had previously been married three times and has five children.

E! News describes the ceremony as intimate, where the two women exchanged their own handwritten vows with the love and support of their family and close friends. There is still no word on their honeymoon plans.

It was just this summer that the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. Baxter had to wait most of her relationship with her now-wife before they were able to come together in marriage. Now at 66-years-old, Baxter is allowed the chance to legally devote her life to the person of her choosing.
