Jason Mraz Vows Not To Wed Fiancee Until Gay Marriage Is Legal

| Filed under: Jason Mraz

jason-mraz-stands-for-marriage-equality.jpg

Wow! Thank you so much for making such a personal and powerful stance for the cause! You're our hero!

Jason Mraz has confessed to sources that even though he proposed to his girlfriend Tristan Prettyman this past December, the couple have no plans to marry right away. Well, actually, their timing hinders on the decision of the U.S. government. The couple have vowed not to get married until it is legal for all gay Americans to get married as well. He explained to sources:

"We both feel that in our engagement, we have a union that's really special and cant be broken. It's a sacred bond. The wedding would be nice for our family, our friends, our community — our moms especially — and so it puts us in the fight. We can't get married until [gay] marriage is legal and equal…I think giving people the right to marry will be a huge movement in civil rights."

So do we!

It really touches our hearts to see so many good people doing all they can to try and get equality for all, even if it is just standing by the cause within your own community.

Bravo, Jason! We wish you and your fiancee all the best. Let's hope everyone will get the chance to walk down the aisle soon!

    Doesnt this guy know to live youre life not other peoples? Its a shame that gays cant get married but he just like a kid saying that.Or maybe hes just saying that as and excuse not to get married.



  2. 2

    He's my hero…. People should have the same rights to marry or divorce whoever they wanted to. End of the history !



  3. 3

    Either that or he's just looking for another reason to stall…

    …typical guy :)



  4. 4

    what a stupid thing to make some points…



  5. 5

    Well, that is the dumbest thing I've ever heard! People are so stupid!



  6. 6

    Uh…lucky girl. It sounds like he just doesn't want to get married. Why even propose?? In order to shut her up?



  7. 7

    whoever invented marriage, should get SHOT.



  8. 8

    oh where to begin
    USA THE superpower of the world cant even stop treating gay people like 2-3rd class citizens because a bunch of bible belt inbred fuckers say so.. Boring just legalise the marraige like just about every country whos not 3rd world and stop the bs give gays the same rights as the rest of the 1st class hereticsexuals and yes i say for gods sake .. let them marry and let them raise kids and stop the effing bs

    as for this guy what a worm i wonder how long it took him to think that up



  9. 9

    I guess she has a secret dick.



  10. 10

    He is just an idiot using "legalizing gay marriage" as a reason for him not to get hitched. It is clear that he doesn't want the commitment of marriage. Does he believe that with his announcement all state and federal government will move heaven and earth to legalize gay marriage so that he can get married to his girlfriend? Just pathetic!



  11. 11

    Perez, it's hinges on, "not hinders on".



  12. 12

    I think it is totally sweet & his choice/right to take a stand like this! More power to em!



  13. 13

    stalling…….



  14. 14

    why get married ….when your'e having fun FUCKING!!!!.



  15. 15

    Wow, I'd be mad if I was his fiancée. Silly boy…



  16. 16

    Re: the real carmen – lol, bible belt inbred fu**ers?? Coming from the moron who misspelled nearly every word in your comment. Nice…Go back to school and get an education!



  17. 17

    Eh sounds like he's just buying some time lol

  18. uyeah says – reply to this


    18

    He justs wants attention or maybe just isn't that much into her. Just look at his goofy face.



  19. 19

    now that is a surefire way to backout of a wedding…



  20. 20

    He's just saying this because he doesn't really want to get married. Eventually she'll get tired of waiting and dump him. It's doubtful he really cares about gay marriage one way or the other.

  21. Shaun says – reply to this


    21

    lolz and i see 17 people care what he thinks. gays are not equal so they should not be married. they cannot reporduce. period. they can have a civil union and they should get benefits but they are not equal. sorry. er not sorry



  22. 22

    That's got to be the best copy out line I've ever heard of for someone who doesn't really want to get married. "Honey, I love you, but, um, I, uh, I just can't marry you until gays can get married. Yeah, that's it. I really DO want to marry you, though."

    We'll see how long his "fiance" sticks around with him.



  23. 23

    What a pointless stand.

    Homosexuals wont be able to marry any time soon, and hopefully never will. Long live the Bible!!!



  24. 24

  25. 25

    Didn't know he had a fiance, I was always waiting around for him to come out of the closet.. It's unfortunate that gays can't get married and there's a lot of things I don't agree with but I wouldn't put my marriage on hold for it.



  26. 26

    Brad and Angelina said the same thing years ago.



  27. 27

    Well, isn't that a convenient 'out'! Some guys just can't commit. Sounds like he wants to have his cake and eat it, too! Or, he already has the milk, why buy the cow?!



  28. 28

    Why did the jerk even bother to propose to his supposed girlfriend?? What a douche. His girlfriend should run for the hills!



  29. 29

    WOW!!!!!! hes my hero!!!!! amazing!!!!!

  30. tygor says – reply to this


    30

    Can I just remind everyone…Charlize Theron and Stuard Townseand said the SAME thing….and look where they ended up! I still like Jason Mraz, but that reasoning is just no good.



  31. 31

    Looks like he won't be getting married any time soon. Didn't Natalie Portman say the same thing? I guess her word doesn't mean much. It will be interesting to see if his does.



  32. 32

    GOOD LUCK BUDDY… MIGHT AS WELL COMMIT SUICIDE OR REMAIN CELIBATE 4EVER. DONT SEE THAT HAPPENING UNTIL HE'S 90.



  33. 33

    I appluade the sentiment but Jason Mraz has no weight to throw around on the issue.



  34. 34

    i support gay marriage 100%
    but thats just so stupid to me.
    sounds like an excuse not to get married



  35. 35

    If you aren't planning a wedding, you aren't engaged. You are just a couple. Endless engagements annoy the crap out of me.



  36. 36

    Re: DSummerfan – and Sodum and Gamora was just a fairy tale.

    What if someone wants to kill because they feel like it??

    YOu don't have the right to do something just because you want to…..there will never be equality and there shouldn't.



  37. 37

    Re: DSummerfan – by the way, you are an idiot.



  38. 38

    That is so incredibly stupid.



  39. 39

    People have the right to love and marry whoever they bloody want, some countries need to get over it, stop being so backwards.



  40. 40

    People who are true Mraz OR Pettyman fans are not in any way surprised by this, they are both very active with several causes close to their hearts, gay rights being one of them. Kuddos to holding true to your beliefs Tristan and Jason and continue to be love.



  41. 41

    Re: DeeDee77 – "I was always waiting around for him to come out of the closet."
    You have heard his music right? The song Butterfly comes to mind. He loves women and has loved Tristan for a very long time.

    Re: Widad Wood
    care to write why ?, it's easy to offend, but to make a point…you need to work a little harder sweety…tsc tsc…



  43. 43

    this sounds like a cop out,.



  44. 44

    Poor her. She's not getting married. LOL



  45. 45

    GMAFB!! Stop! Stop with the gay stuff. Stop trying to shove it down our throats. You are who you are and that's great. Stop trying to make it bigger than it is.



  46. 46

    Sounds like a guy who NEVER wants to get married!



  47. 47

    Re: Widad Wood – You should be ashamed of your ugly face



  48. 48

    RE UGLY DISASTER 311 yes ur too dum to see i mispelled it on purpose just go bac to playing ur banjo cleetus im here to talk about celebritys are u a celebrity NO?
    then stfu



  49. 49

    Re: the real carmen – So you think gays are cool, but inbreds are bad. Aren't you humanitarians supposed to be all about "equality"?? Or does the equality part only stretch to meet your own needs (such as going down on your boyfriend//eating out your girlfriend)?? Oh, let me guess, you don't like inbreds because they're "weird." Well, aren't gays considered "weird", as well? Oh, or maybe you think gays should be accepted because "they can't help who they love." Well, shouldn't that rule be the same for those who love multiple people?? Or even better, you don't like inbreeding because it's illegal!! Psh, that comeback should be pretty self-explanatory!! Anything you say in your own defense will be defined as hypocritical.My mother is an activist against homosexuality (I couldn't care less about it because I think there are better things to fix in this country besides deciding who should or should not wear wedding rings). But anyways, one of the main points that my mother brings up when she writes these political figures is that once homosexuality becomes legal, there's not much room to turn down anything else. (And BOTH sides of the debate that are even mildly involved know about that). Although I do not believe in inbreeding, and I think that it is totally immoral, you sound ridiculous going against something that you're pretty much defending in a different form.



  50. 50

    Wow. Does he realize how selfish he's being to his fiancee? There's other ways to show support of the legalization of gay marriage besides putting his life and his fiancee's on hold as well. Gay marriage won't be legal in the US any time soon and he knows this (which makes me question his intention on this decision). I wouldn't waste my time on him if I were her. :/



  51. 51

    Just an excuse to stall and fool around on his fiance, instead of getting hitched and getting caught cheating in a community state. Nice try Jason.



  52. 52

    Wow, another guy putting off getting married. What a commitment! LOL …Thank you society….poor girlfriend.



  53. 53

    THAT'S HIS EXCUSE FOR NOT GETTING MARRIED. YAAAWN, JUST FESS UP DUDE. STOP USING THE LBGT COMMUNITY FOR YOUR FALSE OF MARRIAGE VOWS. IMMA SURE UR GF IS HAPPY TO HEAR THAT… WHAT A DOUCHE BAG. THE REAL MESSAGE HE'S SENDING TO HIS GF IS SHE'S NOT THE ONE. MOVE ON… LEAVE THIS IDIOT.



  54. 54

    I am sure lawmakers, shaken to their core by this news, will now set out to rectify this situation…. Good grief.



  55. 55

    The gesture is either noble or meaningless. You decide.



  56. 56

    WHAT!!? Well, I was on the fence about the right of homosexuals to marry until I heard this. Now I'm all for it.



  57. 57

    fyi..it "hinges" not hinders….



  58. 58

    lol - way to put a 'noble' spin on putting off the big day.



  59. 59

    He has made this statement before; before he was back with her and before they were engaged. I believe he is sincere in his feelings.
    From what I can tell, these are two souls meant to be together. I have appreciation for both as artists, activists, and human beings. And am thankful for what they bring to my attention everyday.



  60. 60

    Re: juicee_j – Agreed…and it is curious that so many here are jumping to the conclusion that she does not want this, that he is just making up excuses not to wed (as if Tristan or any girl is some victim w/out choices). She has also been vocal about her beliefs…I don't understand why people don't just see this for what it is…2 people who love each other and are standing by something they believe in, as a couple.



  61. 61

    As if the wedding industry as a whole is going to collapse if Jason stalls his marriage. ha! Kelsey Grammer maybe since he gets married so often! Gays should have the right to marry, but it sounds like Jason is stalling!

  62. Wrenn says – reply to this


    62

    Guess his girlfriend is stupid enough to fall for that bull crap. Just another guy who doesn't want to commit and making ridiculous excuses to cover up for it.



  63. 63

    Another Closet douche!!!



  64. 64

    how sweet! what a bigggg sacrafice to make, tho, idk if i could do it, which makes the two just wonderful ppl! angelina and brad said the same thing years ago, all u ppl that say it wont work, and theyre still together!



  65. 65

    jason jason jason …ur girl has a beautiful voice… but so do i… and butterfly… LOL JASON come on man just come marry me in MASSACHUSETTSA GAY MARRIAGE is legal! even though we're not gay.. just sayin.. loveya hun ;)



  66. 66

    hey hey jason me again come to mass and marry me its legal here love you! haha if he even reads these comments…i have some hope..



  67. 67

    Many of you act as if it was solely his decision. It's probably a safe bet that his fiancee feels the same way he does.



  68. 68

    Who cares about Jason Mraz? Seriously– nice gesture dude but it seems like you're really just afraid to marry the girl. Brad and Angie made the same pledge a few YEARS ago!



  69. 69

    Just like Brangelina claims. Whatever, marriage is never a guarantee for love forever. To be together forever can be done without official papers. Although in the US it seems more important due to taxes? However, I'm all for equal rights: gays should have the possibility to get married and have or adopt children too just as anyone else.



  70. 70

    He's not that into you Tristian!

  71. Lyns says – reply to this


    71

    I've made the same vow. Of course, I don't have anyone to marry at this point, but still…



  72. 72

    Re: the real carmen – Yeah…sorry..STILL can't read what you're saying. You know they have free literacy programs (that's a place that teaches you to read) all over the country. Please go first thing Monday morning. I feel so bad for your stupidness….

  73. uyeah says – reply to this


    73

    Re: JasonDiggy – They didn't make a damn difference either.



  74. 74

    Well…….wow. Powerful statement, very kind and sweet. Yet, at the same time, it'd be nice to live your own life for the sake of two people in a relationship with each other, and not the world. Um, i'm pretty sure gay marriage is not gonna be 100% legal anytime soon. Yes, it's getting there a lot faster and sooner than we thought…but really? would if it takes 10 years? 5 years? 20? are u really planning on waiting that long with your fiance? doesn't sound right…..



  75. 75

    how totally cool of him. i know if there were a whole group of americans that were denied the same rights as i had i would definitely stand with them in solidarity. unfortunately the majority of selfish people on this site don't see it that way. pretty typical of america these days. nobody cares about anything that doesn't effect them directly.



  76. 76

    Why would any lawmaker care if this guy marries his girl or not?



  77. 77

    i'm all for everyone having the right to get married regardless of sexual preferences, but this just dumb. these two basically just made a promise they will not be able to keep. there are still way too many close minded people in this country that will continue to vote against gay marriage. eventually these two will get married even if it's not legal everywhere and then he's going to get a bunch of crap for saying this and then not doing it. oh well, no publicity is bad publicity, right mraz?



  78. 78

    apology
    im sorry if any IMBREDs WHOs parent have flour trauma (from being rolled in it) are hurt by my statements and feel the need to repond

    so very sorry



  79. 79

    I'm sure his fiance is THRILLED about that one LOL! Can she please have access to his credit cards in the mean time?



  80. 80

    I would do that too if gay marriage wasn't already legal in my country. He's a very cool guy.



  81. 81

    if they both feel the same about that, then good for them. sidenote : he's adorable and totally shaggable !!!!



  82. 82

    Re: BeautifulDisaster311 – stupidity would have been the appropriate term… but eh its all good. :)



  83. 83

    lol why would he do that? nothing screams i dont want to get married such as…well im not marrying any one til gays can do….now if all heterosexual couples did this then it might be a solid stance but this action just screams commitment phobe in disguise



  84. 84

    Just media hype. Both their record sales are down:hers non-existent, almost, and he's releasing new album in a month or so. They got back together in 2010, after he won the Grammy's. PrtyMan took Ray LaMontagne (who is up for 2011 Grammy) as a lover, to help her career, when she dumped Mraz years ago. The bottom line is media hype and Mraz is a whiz at drumming it up,Pman knows it, too.Gay issues have $$ and media access. This is not true love. Can Mraz&PMan support Gay Marriage Referendum as a married couple? Yes. This is all a media hype to sell records and concert seats.

    Mraz re-hooked up with Prettyman, after a workshop in Venice Beach, last May,when she followed him there, and put the squeeze on him.
