Bill Novak and Norman MacArthur, both 70, replaced an adoption with a marriage certificate, according to multiple sources.

Here's how.

Novak and MacArthur originally went through the adoption process for estate planning after being unable to marry in the state of Pennsylvania, since it was illegal at the time.

They then registered as domestic partners in New York City, many years ago. After moving to Bucks County, they learned that state law prohibits same-sex marriages. A lawyer then advised that they become legal relatives through adoption.

So 15 years ago, MacArthur was adopted by Novak.

Now, the couple’s request to annul the adoption was granted, allowing them to marry. After receiving their marriage license, Novak and MacArthur said that they are happy to be married. They will hold a large ceremony for family and friends later this year.
