The Four Weddings and a Funeral star married his long-term with Sebastian Fox. The ceremony was private, only with a few people. It took place on Greek island Mykonos this Monday. Callow explained why such a location was chosen: “I just love it there. But it is also a very conscious decision to embrace a civilisation and culture, one of the very few instances where homosexuality was an actual integrated part of society,” he told the Daily Mail. “It’s wonderful to make such a great commitment, such a great affirmation of love, in that almost innocent landscape. That pure world.”
Despite originally resisting the idea of same-sex marriage, he later said that he believed gay couples deserved the same rights as their heterosexual counterparts. “Some gay people – I was one of them – resisted the idea. Marriage in my own family had been systematically disastrous – why would I want to repeat that?” he said. “But when I met my present partner, Sebastian. I knew immediately that all these years something in the back of my mind had been telling me that passionate and fulfilling though my past relationships had been, they had not been comparable to the marriages of my heterosexual friends, that they were not built for permanence. I am a gay man. I am in love with my partner and am deeply committed to him, as he is to me,” he added. We intend to stay together until the day one of us dies. There is a word for that sort of commitment: marriage”. Such fair words leave us nothing to add except the warmest congratulation to the newlyweds.
