Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka: Getting Married!

Neil Patrick Harris and longtime partner David Burtka are planning to tie the knot now that New York has legalized gay marriage!

David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago! We’ve been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date,” the 38-year-old How I Met Your Mother star tweeted on Saturday (June 25).

The day before, Neil wrote he’d “sure love to get married. Please, NY Senate, vote in favor of marriage equality today. My family would really appreciate it.”

After the passage of NY’s gay marriage bill, an excited NPH tweeted, “It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this!! A historic night!”

Neil and David are parents to 8-month-old twins, Harper and Gideon.

There wasn’t anything to forgive. Those cheating rumors were just rumors. That’s that.

Attention @ 06/25/2011 at 3:15 pm

Why didn’t they get married in California when it was possible? Ellen did it. I smell publicity stunt.

Attention Equality Haters! If you don’t like equality STFU and get the hell out of here. We are taking back California and we are coming to a state near you and there is nothing you can do to stop. NOTHING!

Media Needy @ 06/25/2011 at 3:22 pm

@Attention: Yes they are quite enamored with publicity. No doubt!

awwwwwwwwwwwww sooo cute love neil congrates

@A: are you kidding me? you’re comparing gay and lesbian people to pedophiles and animals? we’re all people whether hetero or homosexual. for the record, adults can already marry children with consent. Doug Hutchinson made that clear when he married a 16 year old at the age of 51 earlier this year. how do you find it so sick that gay marriage is pulling through when a person can marry their own cousin in more states than they can marry someone of the same sex? grow up.

klutzy_girl @ 06/25/2011 at 3:29 pm


Yes, they’ve totally been wearing the rings for five years (of which there is photographic proof!) all for a publicity stunt. Shut up.

@Attention: if they did, when they got back to new york, it wouldn’t be legal there. it’d be like it never happened.

I am gay but I do not think it is cool for gays to mimic straights. Of course gay couples should have all the same LEGAL rights. Just be two cool men in a relationship. You don’t have to play the same games straights do. IMHO

@boston61: You are probably the most self hating poster on this site. IMHO.

Gay marriage crazy

@Attention: because they live in NY?


Boy you are to be pitied. They want a legal right for their love to be recognized. Nothing is wrong with that. It isn’t mimicking straights–it is asking that their love be considered equal in the eyes of their God, their friends, their family—which it most likely already is—but also in the eyes of the legal system.

I’m not married and never plan to be as it isn’t an institution for me. BUT that said I have friends both straight and gay to whom marriage is extremely important and why shouldn’t my gay friends have the same blessings and opportunities to marry as my straight friends have?

Congrats!! They are such a beautiful couple!

Rebecca Rogers @ 06/25/2011 at 6:03 pm


its so cool … happy for them … time for the rest of the country to get on board.

Of Course publicity @ 06/25/2011 at 6:21 pm

They sell their family pics with kids to a magazine! Of course it is for publicity, especially after the cheating incident. I prefer stars gay or straight who keep their private lives private. It’s none of our business!

God will probably send deathly tornadoes to NY next…morals mean nothing anymore. Giving in to worldly desires is why God is trying to get people’s attention with all these natural disasters and disease. There will be more as predicted, especially with immorality becoming the norm.

@boston61: I’m gay too and have a partner of 20 years and let me say that marriage is more than a symbol of heterosexuality. It’s also about the legal rights and protections that come for our children, our finances, social security, etc.
I don’t want or need to be like anyone else but I do expect to have the same rights as everyone else. Maybe one day you will choose to be married, not because you want to “fit in” but because you love someone, for more than one night.

I’m gay too an my partner of 20 years are getting married in New York this year, not because we want to be like the hetero’s but for our children and all of the legal protections and benefits that come with it. It’s fine you don’t want to be married now but maybe one day you will find you love someone for more than just for a one night stand.

@Charles: rhonda/jasmine/mlef you fugly ignorant betch you sound so stupid – stfu!

The comments on here against gay marriage is disgusting.. Get a time machine and go back to the fricken 50′s. Love is love. Shut up and get a life. Bye

@chris: The 50s. wow what a classy era. <3 Today is utter trash compared to then!

They must smell like a poo down there.

Jasmine Hopkirk @ 06/25/2011 at 10:27 pm

@David: better that than tuna

Happy for them..and everyone else that can get married..Its about time…

It seems ironic how the gay community has embraced this as historic when it only passed as a shining example of special interest groups exerting their power. I wonder how they will feel when other powerful special interest groups pass laws they feel are unfair and/or “discriminating.

Juleanden @ 06/26/2011 at 2:24 am


I hope you are just joking…..The natural disasters that has happened recently happened in the most religious states of the country, are you implying that they are not god fearing enough?????
who is god any way???

yayyyyy, im soo happy for them!!!

Same sex marriage is the same as hetero marriages, it’s meant to be between two consenting ADULTS. It’s not the same as pedophilia or animals at all….they can’t legally give consent. Ya sure there may be some sick pervs out there, but the same can go for hetero marriages. It’s fine if you are against the whole same sex marriage thing, everyone has the right to their own opinion, but the fact that some people are being so malicious and hateful about it is just showing their own ignorance.


NEW YORK ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!

For all you people who are commenting about them getting married as “ewww” or “wrong”, than get the f*** off this website and go do something else with your time. Marriage is about spending the rest of your life with the person you love, whether it be with the opposite sex or the same sex. Neil and David are like seriously the cutest couple in the country. There is absolutely nothing wrong with them or any other same sex couple getting married, so keep your stupid, pointless comments to yourself. Congratulations Neil and David! Thank you for marriage equality New York.

Dooogie! Ce-le-brate good times! Wooo-hoooo! Anyway, in trying to figure out how I might put in my two cents on the demise of DOMA, I think I may have inadvertently stumbled onto the perfect wedding song for a couple of love-struck dudes. It’s a little rough-and-tumble, but it’s got a great dance beat. You can even play it in Russia without fear of reprisal. Check it out!
