Dexter marries his sister on New Year's Eve

Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter of DexterLast April, TV Squad reported that Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter were dating. Dexter dating his sister? The scandal!

I've got to give props to the couple, though ... they got married on New Year's Eve and managed to keep it a secret until yesterday. You think that's a coup, then get a load of this: Reuters reports that the couple dated for about a year and a half before marrying, yet the story of them dating only broke last April. So in this day and age of Hollywood gossip, they managed to keep their relationship a secret for almost a year, if Reuters is accurate.

So is it that the public is somehow respectful of serious actors, and awards them their privacy? Does the public -- and the media -- reserve their obnoxious invasion of privacy for the celebs who thrust themselves into the limelight, through either their bad behavior or the roles they choose?

Regardless, let's quietly extend our congratulations to the happy couple, both for their marriage and the fact that they were able to date and marry in private, with the kind of respect everyone deserves.

I have to say, I had just moved to Hollywood this past September, and was shopping for stuff for my new place at like a Bed Bath and Beyond. I walked past the two of them picking out towels, and was like holy #@! Dexter and his sis. Then walked out of the store and it had a huge billboard of him looking down...kind surreal.

But good for them, they looked really happy

I thought Deb was another "stray" his father had taken in ask well, but I might be misremembering. I missed S3 of Dexter due to household budget cuts :(

Actually, they technically are biological siblings. If you recall, Harry is father to both Dexter and Deb so that would make them half-siblings.

Actually, Dexter did a blood test to see if that guy who died was his father, and he was. Dexter's biological dad died and left him that house. What he remembers (and most of what we've seen) of him is that he had a tattoo on his forearm. He and Deb are adopted siblings.

Well on the show technically they're not biological siblings so it's not like they'd have any 2-headed babies or anything.
