SEATTLE - WA -

Actor Jim Nabors says marrying his longtime male partner doesn't change anything about their relationship - he just wanted it to be formally acknowledged.

The 82-year-old actor best known as Gomer Pyle in "The Andy Griffith Show" says he just wanted the marriage to be legal.

Nabors married 64-year-old Stan Cadwallader in Seattle on Jan. 15. after 35 years together as partners.

Nabors says they flew from Honolulu just for the short ceremony and were married in a hotel room by a judge friend who drove up from Olympia, WA.

Nabors says he's not an activist but feels strongly that everyone should be able to choose who they spend their life with.
