Elton John and David Furnish plan two weddings
London: Singer Elton John and partner David Furnish are planning two weddings.
The couple entered into a civil partnership in 2005 but after gay marriage was legalised in the UK they have decided to tie the knot there and again in Los Angeles when the US city legalises it, reported Contactmusic.
"Los Angeles is like a second home to us. We have a civil partnership, but gay marriage has now been legalised in the UK. When we go back to Britain, we will definitely renew our vows under the gay marriage act but to do it here in Los Angeles, which is a second home to us, we`d love to do it here too! Let`s renew those vows everywhere they become legal!," Furnish said.
While they are excited to wed, Furnish said the couple, who recently welcomed baby Elijah into their family, a brother for their two-year-old son Zachary, are also hoping their high profile union will encourage other people to accept gay marriage.
"It is one of the pivotal defining issues of our time and this moment has arrived and even though we have our relationship legally recognised, people are fighting hard for this issue everyday and deservedly so. If we can give it profile and support, we`ll continue to do that."
