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.
