Tina Turner tied the knot with her longtime partner, German music producer Erin Bach, in a private ceremony in Switzerland, People reports. After 27 years of dating and 15 years sharing a home in Zurich, the couple will celebrate their union with a Buddhist celebration Sunday on the banks of Lake Zurich.
Turner’s previous marriage to Ike Turner, who died of a cocaine overdose in 2007, ended after 14 years and high-profile domestic abuse. Now finally making her second long-term relationship official, it remains unclear as to why Turner, 73, tied the knot with her 57-year-old man. In 2000, the duo spoke to People regarding their matrimonial beliefs, with Turner saying, “We are married — we just haven’t walked down the aisle, and until there’s a need to, we probably won’t.” Whatever changed their minds, we wish them a lifetime of happiness, home-cooking, and bike rides through Zurich.

Singer Melissa Etheridge, 52, announced in a CNN interview her intention to marry partner and Nurse Jackie creator Linda Wallem, 52, following the Supreme Court rulings in US v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry.
The Supreme Court deemed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional and the appeal regarding California’s Proposition 8 amendment to be without grounds. In celebration of the decisions, Etheridge tweeted, “I look forward to exercising my American civil liberties…and getting fully, completely and legally married this year to my true love of over three years, Linda Wallem.”

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court has struck down a federal provision denying benefits to legally married gay couples, the Associated Press reports. The Court ruled that the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons protected by the Fifth Amendment: “DOMA singles out a class of persons deemed by a State entitled to recognition and protection to enhance their own liberty,” the Court’s 26-page opinion, written by Justice Kennedy, states in part. Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Scalia wrote dissenting opinions.
In another 5-4 decision, the Court has also dismissed an appeal regarding California’s Proposition 8, which ruled that only marriages between one man and one woman would be valid or recognized in the state. As a result of the dismissal, same-sex couples can now legally marry in California — though as CNN notes, the decision does not say whether same-sex marriage is a constitutionally-protected right in every state.
