5 Celebrities That Got Engaged After DOMA Ruling

MARRIAGE-GAY/COMICS

Prior to the Supreme Court’s decisions on DOMA and Prop 8, several celebrities stated they would not get married until the gay community legally could. Today’s decisions prompted many to finally embrace the act of marriage and propose to their significant others. Cheers to these big names (and those across the country) who got engaged. (Us single boys look on in sweet envy.)

“We discussed it for years,” Allen (pictured in the middle with Rice) told HuffPo. “As celebratory as it is to have states permit marriage, we’ve always wanted to wait for the real thing when it was genuinely recognized by the federal government of the greatest country on earth.”

“It is about family and I love my four kids,” Etheridge said to US Magazine. “I called my now-fiancee. I’m looking forward to marrying my partner of three years . . . I’m going to get married in the state of California. I woke [the kids] up this morning telling them the Supreme Court ruling on DOMA. . .I love everybody out there. It’s a great day.”

“I am so excited. I am absolutely overwhelmed,” Podrasky told Talking Points Memo. “I can now get married. I feel like my partner and I have been in limbo for several years. We’ve been engaged for a couple years, but now we can start planning.”

Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff?

She excitedly tweeted, “No one be shocked if I get married and pregnant with a daughter today in a slightly premature fit of joy #americathebeautiful.” But we think she was just being a bit too zealous.

      Melissa Etheridge. I have lost all my respect for her. She drops people when she’s done playing. She gives gay people a bad name. Just my opinion! Getting married again? Someone better warn her latest! Hope no more kids are born.

      @MickeyP.: The lesbian marriages will end in divorce at twice the rate of str8t marriages. Just watch. Women bail on marriage all the time, if they are not happy, no reason to make it work, just leave and get as much as you can along the way.
