Gay actor wants to make partner his husband

Los Angeles, Jan 19 (IANS) Actor Neil Patrick Harris detests it when people refer to David Burtka as his gay partner. He feels “husband” would be a more appropriate word, and hints at tying the knot with the chef.

The 38-year-old has been involved with Burtka for over five years and is now eager to marry him, reports
“I’m not the biggest fan of the word ‘partner’. It either means that we run a business together or we’re cowboys. ‘Boyfriend’ seems fleeting, like maybe we met two weeks ago,” said Harris.
“I’ve been saying ‘better half’ for as long as I’ve been able to. I think it’s a little self-deprecating and clearly defines that we’re in a relationship, but it would be nice to say ‘my husband,” he added.
