Amy Schumer knew her husband was ‘the one’ after a month of dating


Amy Schumer’s movie, I Feel Pretty, comes out next week so she’s making the promotional rounds now. Amy recently got married to Chris Fisher after only a few months so that’s what most folks want to ask her about. While on the Today show, Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb pressed Amy for details, specifically, how long before she knew Chris was The One. Amy said it was only about a month into their relationship:

For the record, I do believe people can fall in love in any amount of time. My parents (57 years) were engaged five months after they met. The Mister and I (15 married/21 together) didn’t fall in love until year four. Amy cleared up one big question, though – why the wedding happened on a Tuesday. It turns out, it was all Adele’s fault.

“I was staying L.A. in a house near Jennifer Lawrence, who lives right by Adele and they’re really good friends and I’d never met her before, so we hung out a little bit that week,” Schumer shared. “Then we were real drunk one night and talking about how we wanted to get married and Adele was like, ‘Well, I can marry you,’ and we were like, ‘OK, cool.’ We were making a whole plan, like Tuesday at noon, because she takes care of her kid.”

“Then the next day, she’s like, ‘Hey, we’re not really friends,’” Schumer continued. “She got ordained to marry her good friend, so I think she was like, ‘They’ll be annoyed if I just start marrying random basic b***hes.’ So, then we were like, ‘Should we still get married on Tuesday?’ and decided, ‘Yeah, who cares, let’s do it, so there’s no drama. No planning.’ When you see your friend go through planning a wedding, it just seems like it sucks, so I just texted people.”

Okay, so who wouldn’t plan a wedding around Adele’s schedule? I’m having trouble believing this story, but it would come back to bite her if she was making it up, so I guess I do believe her? It’s a great story. And if they decided to go ahead as planned even though the catalyst was removed, I think that’s sweet. Congratulations to Amy and Chris!

    If she can find love anyone can.

    i was with my husband for 2 years before we got engaged but i knew i wanted to marry him after spening 2 weekends together. i had dated plenty before him and had serious boyfriends and had never, ever, felt that i wanted to marry someone. i even told my mom about a month into dating that i was going to marry him and she was like “ok” b/c she knew i would NEVER say that otherwise.

    A lot of people know the instant they meet someone or shortly thereafter. It’s not uncommon. My fiancé says he knew I was the one the moment I said hello.

  4. Sassy says:

    My soon-to-be husband hadn’t even asked me out yet, but I remember watching him behind the bar and thought to myself, “I think I’m going to marry that guy.” 18 years ago

    I have a like/hate relationship w Schumer. I like her in very few things, hate her in most, but in this instance…I think I kinda like her again. She isn’t my favorite person in the world but I’m so glad she didn’t marry her ex, & this guy (the little we know of him so far) seems genuine? I hope so for her sake. At the end of the day we all deserve someone who makes us happy & TRULY loves us. Here’s hoping, Amy!

  6. Beth says:

    I fell in love with my boyfriend the second we met and he said he felt the same, but I’m in no hurry to get married

  7. Anastasia says:

    I knew the night I met him. He told me later it was the same for him. He asked me to marry him two weeks later, I said yes. 17 months to the day after we met, we got married. That was nearly 27 years ago. Still happily in love!

    It definitely happens.

  8. HelloSunshine says:

    I knew I wanted to marry my husband after a month of dating, something different just clicked with him, BUT we waited three years to get engaged because we wanted to be sure that we were compatible in every way. Like actually living together, going through stressful stuff, traveling and all that. I just can’t imagine marrying someone after a few months and hoping my gut is right lol

    • Horsforth says:

      I married my other half two years ago after 10 years of living together. That being said, I/we knew on our first date that this was it.

      So much so that we didn’t tell anyone we were seeing each other until about 4 months into it, as we were scared about jinxing it. But by that time, I’d already met his 3 kids, which I did about 2 weeks into the relationship.

    • Ange says:

      Yeah that seems the much more prudent way of doing things. I knew with my husband pretty early on but it still took two years to get to the altar for that reason. Another friend of mine got engaged only three months in to dating her bloke but they deliberately set the wedding two years in the future, very smart! They’re now happily married with a kid coming soon. If it’s meant to be it’ll stay that way while you nut out the boring bits.

  9. A says:

    I believe you can know quickly, but depending on who the person is I sometimes question rushing into it (e.g. J Lo reported feeling this way upon seeing husband #1).

  10. Ctnflf says:

    I knew immediately that my fella (who just rolled over in his sleep and rubbed my back, lol what a cutie) was someone I could marry, and vice versa. We have been literally inseparable for three years now, engaged for two and a half. He’s pretty rad, haha. I dated a lot and it always felt so forced and I got so tired of it. I was ready to be with a true partner and I got lucky as hell and found one who was ready, too.

  11. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    And…yup still can’t stand her. But congrats or whatever.

  12. Grumpy says:

    Adele officiated at the wedding of the comedian Alan Carr in January

  13. Vesper says:

    I’m so jealous of all you lucky love birds on here. To quote Snow White “Someday my prince will come!” LOL I probably should stop quoting Disney princesses, that might be the problem.

    • Sara says:

      Yes, that’s part of the problem. Why do you need a prince? Nothing wrong with being alone, so long as your are not lonely. Enjoy yourself and do what you like. You will likely find a partner partaking while partaking in a favorite hobby.

    Every single relationship I’ve had that started based on mutual infatuation ended in demise, with fault on either side or no fault at all. What I felt was not love. It was the idea of it. Personally, I don’t believe real love and partnership forms quickly. People change as time passes; that initial spark isn’t enough to hold a relationship. Respect, logic and a true understanding and acceptance of the other person is enough. I don’t think that can happen rapidly. But that’s just me. Good for them if they’re happy together.
