Elton John and David Furnish 'will marry'

Mar 29 2014, 6:26am CDT | by

Sir Elton John and David Furnish "feel it is their duty" to get married.

The pair were one of the first gay couples to enter into a civil partnership in 2005, and the star's partner has revealed they are planning their wedding now that same-sex marriage is legal in the UK.

He told Attitude magazine: "Elton and I will marry - as a high-profile couple, we feel it is our duty to do it, to make sure that everyone knows that this is something that many gay men living in this country never dreamed would happen.

"When it was announced that gay couples were able to obtain a civil partnership, Elton and I did so on the day it came into law.

"As something of a showman, [Elton] is aware that whatever he says and does, people will sit up and take notice -so what better way to celebrate that historic moment in time."

David also noted there was a "massive difference between" using the word "partner" and "husband" when describing a relationship.

He added: "Elton and I both think there is a massive difference between calling someone your 'partner' and calling them your 'husband'.

"Partner' is such an impersonal word and doesn't adequately describe the love we have for each other.

"When Zachary and Elijah are grown up and having children of their own, they will - hopefully - be living in a world where everyone can be equal, when being married isn't about whether you're straight or gay, but simply about being human."

By Katie Capri, The Cut Hunter S. Thompson had his yellow aviators, Kurt Cobain his Christian Roths, and Audrey Hepburn her cat-eyed lenses: Many icons of the last hundred years have reached their status with a mix of attitude and a really badass pair of sunglasses. Maybe they first wore their glasses for convenience (in the case, of, say, Jackie O. in Capri) or as a means of protection (V. Stiviano), but no matter: Certain sunglasses are now synonymous with the people who first made ...
