The ban on gay marriage in England and Wales ended on Saturday.  One of the country's most famous people will take advantage of that in May.

Elton John will marry his longtime partner, David Furnish.

The couple was legally united in a civil partnership in 2005 and have been together for 20 years.  They have two sons together, Zachary and Elijah.

Furnish explained the plan to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "We don’t feel the need to take an extra step legally. 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...I think what we’ll do is go to a registry office in England in May, and take the boys with us, and a couple of witnesses.”
