George Lucas and his longtime girlfriend, Mellody Hobson, have decided to tie the knot. Sorry ladies, he’s off the market.

The Huffington Post is reporting that the 68-year-old film maker and 43-year-old business woman girlfriend have been dating for seven years. Hobson is president of Chicago-based investment management firm Ariel Investments LLC, which manages nearly $3 billion in investments. She is also a financial contributor on Good Morning America.

This will be Lucas’ second marriage, he was married to Marcia Lucas from 1969-1983. This will be Hobson’s first marriage.

Lucas has been making quite a few headlines lately. He sold Lucasfilm ltd. to Disney recently, and he then turned around and donated the $4.05 billion made on that deal to a foundation focused on education.

For those who are counting that is over $7 billion mentioned in this story alone. You think they’re worried about paying the power bill at the end of the month?
