Amy Schumer on Marriage: ‘I Love the Idea of Committing to Someone’

Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer are officially married! The pair, who were first spotted together in November 2017, tied the knot at a rented house in Malibu on Tuesday, February 13. Us Weekly exclusively broke the news of their Valentine’s Day nuptials, which took place in front of their closest friends, as well as A-list celebs like Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Aniston.

While the couple just made their relationship Instagram official three days before, the wedding shouldn’t come as that much of a surprise. The comedian, 36, has expressed her love for love in the past.

Just a few weeks before her split from Ben Hanisch, Schumer admitted in an interview that marriage was a hope … for someday. “We are talking about today. I love the idea of committing to someone and making that choice and I want to have a family,” she told Howard Stern when asked if wedding bells were in the future. “Right now, we are not in talks.”

Schumer and Hanisch dated for a year and a half before calling it quits in May 2017 — just two weeks after the Stern interview. While together, she admitted he was the first real boyfriend she had, and felt bad he had to deal with her fame.

“Being in love is the scariest thing in the world. You want to f-ing cry and scream. I can’t handle it,” she told Marie Claire in July 2016. “Every time we say goodbye, I think, ‘This will have been a nice last week together.’ Or I tell myself nothing is real and he’s going to leave me and tell me he never loved me. I feel so bad for him. How exhausting it must be dating me.”

Luckily, she didn’t let that fear hold her back from finding new love! She and Fischer, 37, have had whirlwind romance, marrying after just three months of dating.
