No one could accuse Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner of rushing into anything.

The Emmy winning couple, already together 42 years, got married on New Year's Eve.

Tomlin, 75, is a comedy icon and star of stage and screen. Wagner, 78, is the author of The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, The Incredible Shrinking Woman and other Tomlin vehicles.

The wedding, reported by columnist Liz Smith, does not come as a complete surprise since Tomlin said last August the couple was considering it.

Tomlin had said she never thought getting married would be an option for her. But the US Supreme Court's ruling in June that resulted in the end of California's marriage ban got her and Wagner thinking about making things legal.

'You don’t really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice,' Tomlin told E! Online. 'Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very very happy about it.'

Tomlin and Wagner co-wrote six comedy television specials in which Tomlin starred. They also co-wrote and produced the Grammy Award-winning album, Edith Ann: And That’s the Truth, and Grammy-nominated albums Modern Scream and On Stage.

If you have to find good cure for little cost, purchasing online Albendazole seems reasonable. Albendazole is not indicated in hypersensitivity and during pregnancy (http://genericmedicationssupplier.com/?p=586). In women of childbearing stage before pregnancy ought to be excluded. The full precautions can be establish in the medication prescribing data. Blood and liver should be tested carefully peculiarly with durable use. Usually, the values spread during treatment and go then regain to a normal value. Albenza also has been shown to halt the enzyme fumarate reductase, which is helminth-specific. This action may be considered second-hand to the result on the microtubules due to the reduced suction of glucose. Keep Albenza at ordinary temperature, 20 and 25 degrees C. Do not use beside warm up, dampness and light. Preserve in a closed, opaque container. Preserve Albendazole out of the reach of kids and pets.
