9 Things You Didn’t Know About William H. Macy And Felicity Huffman’s Relationship
7. Her Reluctance to Get Married
Macy asked Huffman to marry him several times before she finally agreed. She initially didn’t want to because her parents had divorced when she was just a baby and she didn’t want to lose her identity in marriage. “Bill Macy asked me to marry him several times over several years. And I was finally smart enough to go: ‘I’m going to marry this guy or really lose him for good,’” she told Tribune News Service. “And it was after we broke up for four or five years when he asked me again, I knew I couldn’t say no.”
6. Catholic Values
The Transamerica star was raised Catholic, so when the Shameless star proposed to her, she insisted that they do a pre-cana, a consultation for couples preparing to be married in a Catholic church. At first, he refused, but then he agreed and he ended up really enjoying it. “I wanted no part of that, but as we all know, marriage is about compromises, so I agreed to go to one. We wound up going to seven sessions. He was an incredibly cool guy and I would go as far as to say that he changed the face of our marriage,” he said.
