London: ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star Neil Patrick Harris has dismissed reports that he is preparing to wed his fiancé now that gay marriage has been legalised in New York.
The 38-year-old actor revealed his engagement to his boyfriend of five years, David Burtka, last month, as gay campaigners celebrated the passing of the new legislation, reported Daily Star.
Harris is happy to keep the status of their relationship as it is, instead of taking advantage of the new ruling which came into practise on July 24.
"We have no plans to. We`ve had rings on our right hands for five years. We proposed to each other separately at different times ages ago.
"We were gonna get married in California and then Prop 8 (legislation banning same-sex marriage) happened. We have contemplated it here, but the problem is if you say, `Yes, we`re planning a wedding` then it becomes a big, giant thing. We`re certainly not planning a wedding, but we think it`s amazing that 800 and some odd people got married yesterday (sic)," Harris said.
