The wedding of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka is only just now being talked about by the actor and Harris claims the gay marriage to his long-time partner was primarily about the kids.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, the same-sex wedding of Harris and Burtka was held earlier this month in Italy, and it’s said it featured magic, Sir Elton John, and “orange boy.” Harris is also claiming that he wants the average person to choose his or her own autobiography.
Before the wedding took place, there were actually rumors back in August that the same-sex couple of 10 years might actually be splitting up based upon cheating and arguments over marriage. Apparently, the source of these alleged arguments was the 3-year-old twins.
“We were not [getting married] to elicit any kind of reaction from anyone. We just have been together over 10 years,” Neil Patrick Harris said on The View. “I think when our kids got to the age where they were having reasonable conversations — when they’re asking lots of ‘why’ questions — then it seemed like to be able to have a real, clear-cut explanation of who their daddy is. I think it’s great [to say], ‘He’s my husband.’ I just wanted to be able to say nice things about David, to David, in front of the people that matter the most to us. It was less about a proclamation and more about a declaration that I was able to share in front of our kids, and that he could do back to me.”
Gay marriage continues to be controversial throughout the United States. Some people have challenged the Bible’s stance on gay marriage. On the other side of the debate, a gay marriage billboard quotes the Bible’s stance while also saying, “Love the sinner, hate the sin.” Court cases challenging gay marriage bans have sprung up all over America and it’s believed that lawyers may be pushing for the Supreme Court to rule on a case based upon the belief that the current court would overturn the long-standing opinion that the states should decided for themselves on gay marriage.
