Gone are the days when romantic success meant settling down and tying the knot before the age of 30. The average age at which couples get wed is rising year on year, as is the number of people filing for divorce post-50. The boom in dating apps for older people makes it easier than ever for the average singleton to find love later in life, and celebrities are embracing the trend for later nuptials. Whether it was their first trip down the aisle or they were tying the knot for the second—or third—time, plenty of stars got married after they hit the big 5-0.
Bill Nye, famously the ‘Science Guy,’ said his first official “I do” in May at the age of 66! He tied the knot with best-selling journalist and author Liza Mundy at the Castle Building’s Haupt Garden at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., People reports. ‘Star Trek’ star Robert Picardo (who played The Doctor across the franchise) served as officiant for the talented storytellers who themselves delivered believably moving and funny vows. Even in his 60s, Bill Nye is still showing us all what chemistry looks like!
