They exchanged their vows as husbands in a nondenominational ceremony. Their wedding was officiated by Calif. Tom Paris, a minister who was ordained through the Christian National Church. According to David, the day was the best day of his life.

The marvelous actor, David Chalian had always kept his personal life at a low profile and far from media. He had barely mentioned his real life in interviews and shows. His silence probably was the reason why the media didn't have a reach about his past and current whereabouts. The media and audience were in dilemma whether or not the journalist had wife and children.

The silence of David had made everyone speculate that he perhaps doesn’t want the unwanted limelight of media to fall under his personal life. He may be trying to focus on the career and thus, is dodging the indulgence of media.

But we could not comment anything unless he confides about the reality. The single life of David also had raised the suspicion that he might be gay.
