Calista Flockhart & Harrison Ford To Wed?

Engaged for almost 2 years – he popped the question on April Fool’s Day in 2007 – reports are that Harrison, 66, and Calista, 44, will wed any day:

“Rumours of their imminent wedding are said to be swirling in the town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where the couple have an 800-acre ranch. They have reportedly had blood tests, which in some parts of the U.S. are required in order to obtain a marriage licence.”

This would be Calista’s first marriage, but the third for Harrison – he was married to Mary Marquardt for 15 years and then to Melissa Mathison for 18 years. He has four grown children and is now a grandfather as well.

Harrison has been experiencing fatherhood again since meeting Calista. The Brothers & Sisters actress adopted her son Liam as a newborn in 2001, shortly before she and Harrison started dating. The three live together in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Harrison credits Liam with giving him a different outlook on life.

“I don’t pretend to be anything I am not age wise, but Liam keeps me feeling connected to this growing and maturing process which is so much fun.”

    My husband and I knew each other for two years before we went on our first date. We got married a few months later.

    I really do hope they get married. They seem like a great couple!

    Wow, thanks for so many replies to a serious question! Gee, i was genuninly asking about that blood test…

  • Rinoa

    Anonymous – I didn’t answer your question because I don’t know the answer. I’m not even from the States. But maybe somebody else knows.

  • Carolyn

    Anon – I really don’t know either, but after a bit of Googling it seems that the blood tests are related to detecting disease (eg Mississippi & a couple of other states tests for Syphilis). Some states still require them and others don’t. I’m definitely not an expert on US marriage law, but that’s what I could come up with. :)

  • Jacie

    My husband and I were living together for 9 years before we got married. Now it has been 11 years together total. We are expecting our first child this spring.

    As for the blood test – I was married in California, so I can only speak for the requirements of California, but NO blood test is required for California.

    Um, seems a little fishy since Wyoming does not require a blood test or physical exam of any kind.
