From New York Magazine’s “Reasons to Love New York 2011” article:
Because After 64 Years Together, Louis Halsey and John Spofford Morgan Finally Got Hitched.By Jesse Green

When the Columbia Library closed each night  at ten, it was the custom of John Spofford Morgan, who was studying for  a master’s in international affairs, to hop on the subway and head  downtown to the New Verdi on West 72nd. Back then, there were two kinds  of bars for gay men, he says: pickup joints and old-friends joints. The  New Verdi was the latter, but it turned into the former when at around  10:30 on May 17, 1947, Louis Halsey walked in. “Love at first sight,”  says Lou now. “Was it?” John wonders. “For me it was slower.” In any  case, Lou and John spent the night together, just as they have spent  most nights in the 64 years ensuing. Last month, they got married.
John is 94, recovering from a broken hip but otherwise as  hale and handsome as Lou, 88, says he always was. One snapshot shows the  pair on a beach in Beirut in 1952. Lou looks like Tony Curtis, glossy  and pompadoured. John looks like JFK except, as his mother used to  complain when people compared their families, “we have chins.”
Both served in the Navy in World War II, but on different  oceans, as in a way they were from different worlds on land. John, who  still speaks in the accent of the turn-of-the-twentieth-­century elite,  worked as an economist. Lou, of Hungarian-immigrant stock, cut hair for  decades at the Westbury Hotel. He wears rings and bright colors; John  emphatically doesn’t.
But being gay was a great equalizer then. And being married  is a great equalizer now. “People say, ‘So if you’re married, where’s  the certificate?’ ” Lou explains. “Now we have it.” The pair ignored  domestic partnership when it came along (“A halfway step,” says John),  and since they had already invested in the complicated legal  work-arounds—trusts, powers of attorney—needed to protect one another,  they didn’t see the point of claiming marriage rights in, say, Iowa. But  when the law passed here in June, they knew they would take the step.  “Just to see it in black and white,” says Lou. For John, “it was more  like finishing something.”
The small ceremony, with a minister and three witnesses, was  held in their Village apartment on November 11, a date they chose  because they have for years noticed the time 11:11 on the clock by the  bed. They did not exchange rings and got no gifts, “except bourbon!” Lou  says. “But he”—he waves at John—“started to cry.”
“Did I?” John wonders.
