Elton John To Marry David Furnish In 2014

Elton John announced that he will marry longtime partner David Furnish in 2014.

The music legend made the revelation on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he clarified how a marriage might change their relationship, which is currently classified as a civil partnership:

"In England, we've had the civil partnership, which we did in 2005. And that made a huge difference; a commitment to your relationship. I didn't think it would, but it did. And it really helped our relationship. And if the laws are going to help us again, then as a famous gay couple we will do it."

He added: "It's our duty to do it, to make sure everyone knows that this is something that is a gift from, you know, that we never dreamed we would get."

John and Furnish have been a couple for twenty years and have two children together. John appeared on the show to promote his new album The Diving Board.
