With Prop 8 Dismissed, Modern Family's Cam & Mitchell Might Be Getting Married
Cam & Mitchell might be ready to tie the knot on Modern Family now that Proposition 8 is no longer a roadblock.
Modern Family co-creator Christopher Lloyd told EW that today’s court ruling could impact the show’s fifth season and whether Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) finally tie the knot. “It’s a real possibility,” Lloyd said. “It’s certainly something we are contemplating on the show in ways we wouldn’t have in prior seasons.
“We’ve had a number of conversations,” Lloyd continued. “As you can imagine in Cam and Mitchell’s life, they would be feeling that a door has opened that was closed to them. Wouldn’t it be pretty tempting to think about walking through it? We imagine a lot of gay couples today are deciding whether to get married now that it’s open to them. From our standpoint, that’s something to explore.”
“It’s a funny thing, sitting around and celebrating for your characters on a day like this,” Lloyd added. “We were happy for Mitch and Cam today!”
