Tina Turner tied the knot with her longtime partner, German music producer Erin Bach, in a private ceremony in Switzerland, People reports. After 27 years of dating and 15 years sharing a home in Zurich, the couple will celebrate their union with a Buddhist celebration Sunday on the banks of Lake Zurich.

Turner’s previous marriage to Ike Turner, who died of a cocaine overdose in 2007, ended after 14 years and high-profile domestic abuse. Now finally making her second long-term relationship official, it remains unclear as to why Turner, 73, tied the knot with her 57-year-old man. In 2000, the duo spoke to People regarding their matrimonial beliefs, with Turner saying, “We are married — we just haven’t walked down the aisle, and until there’s a need to, we probably won’t.” Whatever changed their minds, we wish them a lifetime of happiness, home-cooking, and bike rides through Zurich.
