Joy Behar got married to Janowitz only in 2011 but they were famously a couple for almost three decades before tying the knot.

Behar once said that they put off their wedding because she wanted to wait until gay marriage was legalized in New York. She also revealed that she was tired of having to ask for senior discounts for a “boyfriend.” Reportedly, Janowitz was also tired of Behar’s relatives referring to him as “that old guy.”

Appearing on Rachel Ray, Behar said that she wouldn’t say yes to Janowitz until his parents had passed away because she didn’t want in-laws. 

“I waited until all the parents were dead. So I have no in-laws at all. He has none and I have none. ‘Cause marriage is mostly about in-laws, I find. They always want you to visit them and come for lasagna,” said Behar.
