Elton John to get hitched in May

London, March 30: Singer Elton John and his partner David Furnish will get married in the summer of 2014.

They will marry in an English registry office in May, Furnish told the Las Vegas Review Journal at John’s birthday party Friday at Fizz, Las Vegas, reports eonline.com.

The two entered into a British civil partnership eight years ago. But, given that Friday marked the first day gays were allowed to exchange vows in England, they’ve decided to head to the altar again.

“We don’t feel the need to take an extra step legally,” said Furnish.

“But since we’re committed for life, we feel it’s really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation. We all live by example,” he added.
