For years, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were very open about not wanting to get married until everyone in the United States had that same right. Due in part to close bonds they each had with gay friends, as well as their personal interpretations of morality, neither was particularly excited about tying the knot while the government deprived others of that right. Their six children however didn’t have as much of an appreciation for the larger message. They just wanted to see mom and dad married like their friends' parents; so, after fighting the urge forever, Pitt popped the question to Jolie last month. She, of course, said yes, but apparently, that pledge doesn’t change their hope for marriage equality.

Speaking to reporters at Cannes, Pitt said no official date has been set for the impending ceremony. According to People, the actor also reiterated his hope for a change in the laws prior to his I-Dos. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that will happen if they get married anytime soon, but for many members of the gay community, their vocal support is enough. Numerous gay rights groups released statements congratulating Brad and Angie on their relationship status change, and it’s hard to imagine a grudge will be held over exchanging vows for the children’s sake.

Whenever this wedding does occur, it will no doubt be an elegant affair, likely with a slew of famous faces and special smiles. Their commitment may have been forged through having six children, but I’m sure getting the piece of paper will still feel wonderful. Besides, then they’ll be able to get cheaper insurance. Win win.
