Lily Tomlin - Lily Tomlin Considering Marriage
Actress Lily Tomlin has backtracked on her previous decision not to wed her partner of 42 years, insisting she now wants to walk down the aisle.
The 9 to 5 star has been dating writer Jane Wagner since 1971, but despite a change in U.S. law paving the way for same-sex couples to wed, Tomlin claimed organising her big day would be too much hassle.
However, the couple is now considering a union.
Tomlin tells E! Online, "Jane and I have been together for 42 years. We're thinking maybe we'll get married. You don't really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice. Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very very happy about it."
Tomlin admits she won't be opting for a huge white dress if she does exchange vows with Wagner: "No rings, no bridal dresses. Maybe we'll be dressed like chickens."
