Former Roman Catholic priest Alberto Cutié – the man who caused a scandal in May when he admitted to having a relationship with a woman – is now a married man.

Cutié, 40, who left his Miami church and is becoming an Episcopal priest (they do not take vows of celibacy), wed girlfriend Ruhama Buni Canellis, 35, in a ceremony presided over by a Coral Gables, Fla., judge on Tuesday, according to the Miami Herald. (The cost: just $91.)

They will also exchange vows in a religious ceremony sometime in the near future, adds the paper.

The pair have been together for about two years, and met in church. This is Canellis's second marriage.

Cutié, nicknamed "Father Oprah," is the author of Real Life, Real Love: 7 Paths to a Strong, Lasting Relationship.
