WASHINGTON: Pop icon Elton John says he will bind the knot with partner David Furnish now that his native Britain has legalized gay marriage.
”But we will do it and it will be a joyous occasion,” John stated.
The couple, who have two children together, entered into a civil partnership in 2005.
A historic law legalizing same-sex marriage took effect in England and Wales on Saturday, the final stage in the long fight for legal equality for gays and lesbians.
“For this legislation to come through is joyous, and we should celebrate it. We shouldn’t just say, ”Oh, well we have a civil partnership. We’re not going to bother to get married.” We will get married”. I think what we’ll do is go to a registry office in England in May, and take the boys with us, and a couple of witnesses,” the publication quoted him as saying, Newsone.
