Family Ties star Meredith Baxter spent the weekend… wait for it… tying the knot.

Baxter, 66, married contractor Nancy Locke on Sunday in a small ceremony in L.A., E Online reports.

“Now I understand why marriage caught on!” Baxter told People.

The couple, who had been together for seven years, exchanged handwritten vows in front of friends and family, including Baxter’s five kids. This is the TV star’s fourth marriage after Robert Lewis Bush, David Birney and Michael Blodgett.

“I got involved with someone I never expected to get involved with, and it was that kind of awakening,” Baxter said on Today after coming out in 2009. “I never fought it because it was like, ‘Oh, I understand why I had the issues I had early in life.’ I had a great deal of difficulty connecting with men in relationships.”

So this should go much better, we hope.
