Rumors have been swirling in the fashion world for months, but WWD.com is now reporting that Marc Jacobs is engaged to his ad executive boyfriend Lorenzo Martone. The couple has been dating for roughly a year and are allegedly going public with the news tomorrow when they arrive in Martone’s homeland of Brazil wearing rings. The couple is headed to Sao Paulo to celebrate the designer’s multi-brand store, which opened in January. The 45-year old designer has another reason to celebrate this week – he was just nominated for the CFDA womenswear designer of the year award.

I give my congratulations and wish them all the luck. I am so jealous. They are two truly beautiful men! Anyone would have been lucky to have either of them, it’s amazing that they’ve found each other.

No court on Earth has the right to deny it either. My God is a tolerant one that loves all love! I wish them a life of happiness.

Rebecca, it’s not “behavior”, it’s love. And whatever your lord says, I could care less. If you spend your life hating those who are different, and maybe don’t share your views, then I wouldn’t want to be a part of your religion. I choose to celebrate life and love all. Everyone was created equal, it’s unfortunate that some like you, and many many more, chose to believe they are above others.

That is fantastic news! Everyone deserves happiness whether it is with someone of the same sex or not. What a great role model for the gay community.

Best wishes to them both! i wonder if they are going to have kids??

Haters:
two dudes together is perfectly fine! shouldn’t even have to say that…. it is 2009 for god sakes! the gays deserve every right that the straights do. sorry if your bigoted, small heart can’t be happy for them.

Rebecca: Your life would be more fulfilling if you spent less time spreading hate and more time learning to love. I am not gay or lesbian, but that doesn’t mean that no one else should be. We all have the right to love whomever we want.
Just remember, in the end the love you make is equal to the love you take.

AHA you need to get a grip. The bible does not say that men should not marry men or women other women! It is a persons personal spin on the bible that created prejudice against same sex couples. i myself am married to a wonderful man, but if i was in love with another woman there is no doubt in my mind that we should be able to marry. and i would still be accepted by god and in heaven!!!
