Neil Patrick Harris will get Married : It’s Inevitable And It Will Be Awesome, the Actor Says. Actor and star of “How I Met Your Mother” Neil Patrick Harris is excited and talking about marriage. Harris, who have been engaged to David Burtka for almost seven years, told E! Online in a report posted on June 30 that the couple will eventually get hitched.
With the Supreme Court’s historic rulings to struck down California’s Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act, the Hollywood star is pumped but states that the happy couple won’t rush a wedding. But he knows the big day will be worth the wait. He told E! Online:
“Certainly, we have children and marriage is an appropriate thing to do [as] a part of their well being, so I’m sure it will be inevitable—and awesome!” Harris told me last night at the opening of Michael Jackson ONE at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
Where the nuptials will take place is still up in the air, too. “We’re about to move to New York so it’s a tricky situation,” Harris said. “I don’t know if it would be an east coast or west coast thing.”
“It’s exciting,” Harris said of last week’s historic Supreme Court rulings that struck down California’s Prop 8 and DOMA, which had denied Federal benefits to married same-sex couples. “I figured it was an inevitability.
“I’m not one who jumps around and cheers and screams because I thought that was inevitable and was going to happen,” he continued. “It’s logical. If you look at public opinion polls, everyone, the majority of people, are very for people that fall in love with each other being able to own that.”
