British singer Elton John said in an interview on Monday, that he will marry long-time partner David Furnish now that Britain's legalization of gay marriage has been put into effect. 67 Years old John, told NBC's "Today" host Matt Lauer that he and Furnish, who were one of the first couples to become united when Britain legalized the Civil Partnership Act in December 2005, will marry in a small ceremony this year, as early as May. The singer said:"Having our civil partnership was an incredible breakthrough for people that have campaigned for a long time - through the '60s and the '50s in England when it was so hard to be gay and hard to be open about it.
