On March 8th 2007 Mikey married his fiance Alicia Simmons at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Gerard was the best man at the wedding and the first to announce the news on the bands official website:
“I’m very proud to announce my brother’s recent marriage. Watching him grow up into a man and finding love makes me the happiest brother alive. In light of this joyous event, the band has decided to give him and his wife a much needed break from the road to start a life and have a proper honeymoon and do all the things a newly-wed couple should do. I know this is upsetting news, as it is for us, but we will continue to tour with a temporary replacement until he has situated himself in his new life.”
Frank later explained to Kerrang! magazine that there was no set date for Mikey’s return to My Chemical Romance and that Mikey did not ask for a break, but when the band suggested it he jumped at the chance. Frank says that he was a big supporter of Mikey’s departure in case he too wanted to take a break from the band on his upcoming wedding that took place just a year later in March 2008.
Following the departure many rumors began to circulate about the departure being permanent or that the band were splitting up. These rumors were denied by all members of the band.
On 29th September 2009 Mikey revealed via his Twitter page that he was offered a try-out to be in the alternative rock band Kill Hannah.
