  1. Not that it's any of my business, but can't help but get curious lately how these interviews go back and forth a lot between saying Paul/Maya are "partners" or "married". Until this year I always saw them referred to as partners, but now in recent interviews they've been described as a married couple a lot and I've also seen both of them recently referring to each other as husband and wife. At the same time I'm also still seeing articles calling them partners or correcting themselves after previously saying they were married.

    Obviously same fuckin diff, but just for the sake of semantics, anyone know if they ever made it "official"?
