Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka Relocating To New York

Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka Moving To New York

Neil Patrick Harris is planning to move his husband-to-be and toddler twins to New York City after he’s done filming the final season of How I Met Your Mother in Los Angeles.

The 39-year-old actor and fiancee David Burtka, who announced their engagement in June 2011, are planning to move out of their Los Angeles mansion and shift to the Big Apple as soon as Harris’ hit TV comedy concludes next year.

Part of their motivation, admits Harris to Us Magazine, is to move to a state which allows the couple to marry. “It would be great to move the ring from my right hand to my left, but Prop 8 won’t allow us to do that,” says the actor, referring to California’s ban on same-sex marriage. “David and I have been soulmate-y since we first met.”

The pair are also hoping to establish where their two children, aged two, will enrol in school. Speaking to Usat an event in New York, Neil Patrick Harris said:

How I Met Your Mother is wrapping up its last season next year, and we’re kind of at the end of a chapter in our lives, [the next chapter] will be in New York. So, it’s fun to be here tonight. We’re here in New York City and imagining the future, which won’t be too far away. Our plan is to reroute ourselves and have our kids start to go to school here. We’re at that age where we need to figure out where our kids are going to be educated. Then we hope that work finds us.”

The couple also gave a small insight into life with their two tots, saying they deliberately avoid having a live-in nanny. “We’re not that kind of couple,” said Burtka. “We pride ourselves on waking our kids up every morning and putting them to bed every night.”

    I like Neil Patrick Harris but the Burtka comment about "We are not that kind of couple" referring to the live-in nanny statement, is a bit derisive. I do not have a nanny for my children, but for people who want understanding of their relationship, maybe he ought to be a little less judgmental in understanding other couples. Not having a "live-in" nanny does not offer an explanation as to how often they use a nanny during the day to take care of their twins. Having a live-in nanny does not mean you necessarily aren't the one waking your child up or putting your child to bed. So while this comment was made about not being "that kind of couple", others look down on strangers raising toddlers at all. Again, maybe somebody who wants acceptance, ought to show a little more, just a thought.

    Same-sex marriage is perfectly contrary to the principle of marriage, having more resemblance to divorce and adultery, same-sex marriage purposely separates a child from at least one biological parent, thereby creating broken homes, not as a matter of extraordinary circumstances, but as routine. Same-sex marriage proponents callously ignore a child's Natural Right to know, and be raised by, both biological parents, and make the most preposterous and pretentious claim that marriage was instituted by civil society primarily for the benefit of any two loving adults. Take away Natural Laws, and that moral tie which supports justice and honesty in a whole nation and establishes also particular duties in families, or in other relations of life; and man becomes the most savage and ferocious of all animals, licentiousness becomes the consequence of independence.

    Children are not pets one purchases from rescue shelters(adoption clinics) and puppy mills(insemination and surrogacy). Children are human beings endowed with a natural desire to be procreated from an engendered act of love between a husband and a wife. Same-sex marriage is adulterous by nature and thereby destructive to not only children, but to our civilization.

    Here are two truths regarding marriage: (1) A man creating a family with another man is not equal to creating a family with a woman, and (2) denying children parents of both genders at home is an objective evil. Kids need and yearn for both.

    Same-sex marriage proponents demand “Marriage Equality”, yet, in return, they offer less-than-equal protection of the child’s happiness than can be afforded through the presence of both biological parents.

    Same-sex proponents profess that it is love which gives the right to join the institution of marriage, yet, in doing so, they selfishly violate the principle loving objective of this noble institution; to protect a child’s Natural Right to be raised by both biological parents.

    In fine, same-sex marriage surmounts to nothing more than an unnatural extravagance which the supporters most ignorantly claim to be a “right”.

    “No one has a right to do that which, if everybody did it, would destroy society.” —Immanuel Kant.
