Who Is Luke Macfarlane Spouse?

After almost a year, the fans didn't see much of the couple hinting towards their break-up.
- Chad Slivinski (2008)
Around 2008, Luke was rumored to have Chad as his spouse. However, there is no concrete evidence that the two have dated. They were only assumed to be a couple.
Comes Out As Gay In 2013
Luke initially feared that coming out could affect his career. After hiding who he was for all his life, he confessed hoping to be authentic. The 41-year-old came out as gay on April 2008.
His rumored partner Wentworth Miller, on the other hand, came out in 2013, penning a letter rejecting an invitation to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival because of Russia’s anti-LGBT laws. The message was a bold stance in support of the LGBT Russians, who he thought were facing extreme violence and persecution.
Miller, the member of The ManKind Project, wrote,
“As a gay man, I must decline. I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government. The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly. Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I'll be free to make a different choice.”
When Miller announced that he was gay, the world wasn’t surprised much by the news, as many people already had read 2007's reports stating his relationship with Macfarlane.
Luke Macfarlane's On-Screen Husband Supports LGBTIQ Movement
While Luke's personal life along with his relationship status remains private, it's interesting to know that he had a wedding that felt genuine - in spite of it being on screen. Perhaps that moment gave him a tiny taste of what an actual wedding can be.
The first show that featured an LGBT wedding between series regulars in the US was ABC’s Brothers & Sisters. The longtime couple, Kevin Walker (Matthew Rhys) and Scotty Wandell (MacFarlane) tied the knot with a touching ceremony in 2008.

The on-screen pair spoke to EW on 21st May 2018 about their trademark onscreen marriage, embracing the modern-day reality of the world.
“I admire ABC for kind of being the first, especially given they are on under the Disney umbrella, for taking that leap and going, ‘This is what a modern family looks like’” - Matthew Rhys
“It didn’t feel like it was a stunt on the part of the writers. It didn’t feel inauthentic. It didn’t feel like they were forcing something for dramatic effect and get ratings. It really felt like the authentic thing. In the context of the greater world, it didn’t feel like we were doing anything too daring.” - Luke Macfarlane
Their LGBTIQ fans appreciate them for standing up for the community in the public sphere.
