Tim Tebow remains an icon to many in the Mile High City, thanks to the gloriously bizarre period between April 2010, when he was drafted to play quarterback for the Denver Broncos, and March 2012, when team executive John Elway sent him packing (despite some miraculous victories that seemed to justify one of his nicknames, the Chosen One) in favor of Peyton Manning.

So it's big news in these parts that Tebow has confirmed his marriage to former Miss Universe Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters — especially in light of his longtime insistence that he would remain a virgin until he tied the knot.

Despite professions of faith being key to Tebow's brand, plenty of folks never believed he kept this pledge. But that hasn't stopped Twitter users from celebrating his presumed crossing of this threshold in ways that are hilarious, sincere or both.

The following tweet roundup includes good-natured ribbing, expressions of awe, a poll about whether he was actually able to just say no all this time, and a clip from The Forty-Year-Old Virgin, capped by someone who seems uncertain that Tebow has yet done the deed.

Old habits are hard to break. Continue for our choices of the twenty most memorable tweets about Timmy the Newlywed's big night.
