Last night, the state of New York legalized gay marriage!
Before the ruling, Neil Patrick Harris tweeted that he would love to tie the knot. He said, “I’d sure love to get married. Please, NY Senate, vote in favor of marriage equality today. My family would really appreciate it.”
After the ruling passed, he took to Twitter to express his excitement. He said, “It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this!! A historic night!”
He went on to reveal that he and partner David Burtka have been engaged for five years, but were holding out for it to become legal. He added, “David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago! We’ve been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date.”
Good for them! Congratulations to all of the happy couples that this ruling brought together. Now, will the rest of the States follow suit already? We should be ashamed of ourselves as a nation for letting it take this long to give everyone equality.
I wonder when Neil and David’s big day is going to be?
