Being gay now and 2 decades from now were two very different prospects. While the conditions for LGBTQ+ identifying people is still not great, the progress that has been made in the past 20 years has been clear. For one, many countries are making it possible for same sex couple to get married. But even before that progress, Michael Urie and his boyfriend Ryan Spahn, were living together and openly gay.
The couple has been together for more than 12 years in 2021, the longevity of the relationship is where the husband talk is coming from. But despite the longevity, the start of their romance was less than ideal as multiple cancelations and desires for something new hindering the two from getting together. It took a few years for the two to even sit down and go on a date from the time they fixed to meet up for the first time.
Fans may consider Ran Spahn to be Michael Urie's husband but that is not the case. The couple has not even decided to get engaged. They live by patterns and try not to make any plans, maybe that has a lot to do with the way the couple met for the first time. According to Michael, he met boyfriend Ryan in a Karaoke bar in Burbank, California, but Ryan has no recollection of the meeting.
They were supposed to go out on a date soon after their first meeting, a mutual friend of the couple had setup a date for the two. Well, it was not to be as one of Michael's friend died and he could not make it to the date. A burned Ryan from past relationship decided it was not worth the hassle to reschedule and that was the end of their short time knowing each other.
Michael and Ryan did not stay in touch and soon Ugly Betty took off for him to really worry about other stuff. But fate had other ideas for the Netflix star, the show moved to New York and at the same time Ryan moved to the city as well. They kept running into one another and one day when a mutual friend could not make it to a meeting with the two, Michael and Ryan ended up having their first date.
Ryan Spahn is Not Michael Urie's Husband: They Have Been Together for 12+ Years
The first date went great as they finally got to see each other for who they really were. It was also what they needed to go to the next level, as soon after the date Michael and Ryan moved in together. They even started to appear in theatre shows together, starring opposite to one another. After dating people outside of their career, it was boring for the two and they almost found each other at the perfect time.
Michael said, "We’re the same age, 33, and could be considered the same type. I dated people who weren’t actors before, and it can be complicated for people who aren’t in show business; it can be really boring. He gets it, but sometimes we get sick of it." The common career has allowed the couple to follow a pattern and not worry about putting themselves through longterm plans.
That is also probably the reason why Ryan Spahn has not become Michael Urie's husband. Being boyfriends is something they know well after 12+ years of relationship. There is no need to complicate their relationship by introducing a variable which has a tendency to complicate things sometime. So, Michael Urie is not married, he is however happily in a relationship with his boyfriend.
