"Marriage is a piece of paper, and it is love that bound two people together." This is what Louie Spence had to say about marriage, who is married to his gay partner of 13 years.
Openly Gay Louie Is Married To Husband, Leto Fernandez
Louie, who came out as gay at the age of 19, is married to his husband for almost a decade. He married his spouse of eight years, Leto Fernandez, on 26 August 2007 in a civil partnership.
In an interview with Mirror.co.uk in March 2011, he revealed that he met his husband in 2001 in a club. Louie's colleague, Jason Gardiner, introduced him to Leto. He said his relationship with Leto Fernandez wouldn't have started if Jason wouldn't have made a mistake that day.
After dating for seven years, he and Leto got engaged on their anniversary. Leto proposed to him to get married, writing a poem for him.
Although he got into the marriage bond with Leto, he doesn't believe in marriage because he feels it's just a piece of paper. Instead, he believes "Love" has kept his marriage with Leto alive.
Despite their 13 years of marriage, Leto doesn't often appear on Louie's social media, and it is because his spouse doesn't allow him to post pictures of him.
However, Louie sometimes posts pictures relating to Leto. On the occasion of their 11th wedding anniversary, he posted a picture with his husband, which featured the couple soaking up the sun. However, he is yet to reveal the face of his husband.
