(Newser) – After 21 years together, Elton John and David Furnish are getting married this weekend. The couple will wed in England now that same-sex marriage is legal there, John's rep tells Us. John, 67, and Furnish, 52, who met in 1993, became civil partners in 2005 and are parents to Zachary, 3, and Elijah, who is almost 2. Both have previously said their wedding will be a quiet affair, with Furnish theorizing they would simply visit a "register office" with the boys and "a couple of witnesses." No matter what they do, said John in March, "it will be a joyous occasion." (He also recently said that he thinks Jesus would support gay marriage.)
