Ellen & Nicole have not only surprised but surprised everyone – with the exception of their parents; the two of them have gotten married* (with only their immediate families as guests) and have told everyone else afterwards.
Though nevertheless I wish them all the best for their future.
By the way I’m feeling a bit honoured after all I learned from a personal message sent by Ellen and not by a status/profile update on a social network site like some other people did. Who’d argue that neither Ellen nor Nicole has a sense of romance?
And an additional remark for all the bisexual readers who feel that many people (including gay people) think that they’re notoriously promiscuous and can’t decide with whom to settle: I’m happy to stress that Nicole is a bisexual.
*of course they have not gotten officially married but have entered a civil partnership as marriage equality is not yet introduced in the UK but is expected to be introduced and as far as I’ve understood all civil partnerships will be “upgraded” once marriage equality will be introduced.
