Elton John To Marry Longtime Partner David Furnish After Legislation Change

Elton John and his longtime partner David Furnish plan to get married in May.

The couple, who have been together since 1993, say they decided to tie the knot after legislation passed in England to allow same-sex marriage.

“We don't feel the need to take an extra step legally," Furnish tells the Las Vegas Review Journal. "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."

But don't expect a big party from the pair, who had 650 people at their Windsor home when they entered a British civil partnership eight years ago.

"With the kids, everything is different," he said. "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."

“After we did it, we felt this amazing sense of commitment and happiness we didn't anticipate happening," he recalls. "It's a really nice thing."

"Initially, the political side of you is like, 'No, no, we must have equality.' When you finally get it, it's like, 'Oh my god, this feels really nice.' It's a lifting thing."
