Gov. Jared Polis of Colorado Marries His Longtime Partner, Marlon Reis

Source: New York Times

Mr. Polis is the first sitting governor to have a same-sex wedding.

Gov. Jared Polis of Colorado married his longtime partner, Marlon Reis, in a traditional Jewish ceremony on Wednesday, the first time a sitting governor has had a same-sex wedding.

It was another first for Mr. Polis, 46, who was the first openly gay man to become a governor when he was elected in 2018. In a statement on Facebook on Thursday, he said the wedding was a small ceremony attended by “family and a few close friends.”

“We are both excited for this new chapter in our lives together, and our hearts are full with the blessings of health, love, and family,” he said.

Mr. Polis and Mr. Reis, a writer and animal rights activist, have been together for 18 years and were engaged in December, according to the governor’s office. They have two children, ages 7 and 9.
