In the wake of all the positive news surrounding gay marriage in the U.S – unfair walls are being knocked down all over the place – Kristen Bell has proposed to her boyfriend… via Twitter. These really are modern times.
"@daxshepard1 will you marry me? Xo #marriageequality #loveislove" the Veronica Mars star tweeted, before posting her support for today's ruling, saying, "You're damn right DOMA is unconstitutional!! #equalitymatters” Bell also told CNN, "I don't believe in standing in the way of love and I want to stand up for that right." She added, "We're not going to have a party when half of our friends…can't do that thing we're doing. We're not goig to ask them to come celebrate a right they don't have. That's just tacky!" Obviously, the marriage decision doesn’t rest on Twitter, and we’re pretty sure the couple, who started dating back in 2010, have talked about their nuptials in person. Still, the fact that Dax Shepard hasn’t responded is a little awkward.
He did tweet out about gay marriage, though, saying: "DOMA is dead. Prop 8 is dead. Now let's bring my big, gay marriage to @IMKristenBell to Life!!!!" With all the celebrity support, the barriers involved in gay marriage are slowly getting demolished. Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure in California that outlawed same-sex marriage has been abolished.
