Elton John to Marry Long-time Partner John Furnish

Elton John entered into a partnership with John Furnish eight years ago. This May, now that same-sex marriage is legal in England, the couple will finally be getting married.

Furnish stated, "We don't feel the need to take an extra step legally. But since we're committed for life, we feel it's really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation. We all live by example."

John himself echoed similar sentiments on the Jimmy Kimmel Live. He said, "If the laws are gonna help us again, as a famous gay couple we will do it. It's our duty to do it to make sure everyone knows that this is something that's a gift that we never dreamed we'd ever get."
