Neil Patrick, who plays the part of the straight Barney Stinson on the show - announced his engagement to partner David Burtka on Twitter, after gay marriage was finally made legal in New York on Friday.
He tweeted: "It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this!! A historic night!
"David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago. We've been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date. (sic)"
It's been an exciting year for the couple, who have been together since 2004, after they became parents to Gideon Scott and Harper Grace in October 2010 (via a surrogate mother).
Well done New York for finally passing the law, and hopefully setting a great example for all the other states.
Picture the scene: You're out at a posh restaurant, enjoying a romantic night out with your other half, when he gets down on one knee and pulls out...a Costco ring box.
Yup, the wholesale warehouse has been offering diamond rings for some time. But if your partner is really rich, he could treat you to their brand new single 6.77-carat diamond solitaire ring for $1million.
Sounds a bit pricey, but the ring is actually valued at $1.6million, so you're getting a Costco bargain.
They actually sell 100,000 carats of diamonds a year, so there's clearly a market for it.
How would you feel if your partner bought your engagement ring from Costco?
'Alex asked Katie not to release it as he wanted more time to discuss matters and come to terms with their situation. Katie has agreed to this out of respect for Alex and because she doesn't want to hurt him.'
Ouch! That's one way to publicly humiliate someone into signing the divorce papers.
Thankfully, that's not the only news this weekend.
The last couple of years has been tough for most of us, with prices going up, salaries going around and most of us having to make some form of cut back. According to a recentl survey by myvouchercodes.co.uk, it would seem the cut backs are having an impact on people's relationships.
The survey revealed that the majority of break ups over the holiday period were rooted in disagreements over dosh.
Arguments usually focus on how money is spent, followed by one partner overspending the cash or lying about money.
I'm a very nervous driver. Particularly when my boyfriend, someone who drives for a living, is in the car with me. It turns out, I'm not the only one. A new survey by the Institute of Advanced Motorists suggests that 15% of women feel nervous when their partner is in their car. A further 8% never feel relaxed when their other half is in the car. Funnily enough, only 5% of passengers are actually nervous, so perhaps we're worrying for nothing.
The survey went on to reveal that men are generally more confident behind the wheel, but both sexes are equally likely to admit to speeding, poor parking or losing their temper.
Perhaps as a result, men are four times more likely to drive when out and about as a couple as women are. This only changes after a night out, when the woman is more likely to drive them home.
So why are women more nervous than men behind the wheel? Is it down to confidence rather than skill?
In a week when the majority of the UK has eaten their body weight every day in chocolate, carbs, cheese and cocktails, the last thing we really want to read is a guilt trip about our weight. But one Daily Mail writer won't be going back for seconds, as her husband has warned her that he'll divorce her if she puts on weight.
Samantha Brick is a slim size 10, and is married to her French husband Pascal. Pascal has some pretty severe rules when it comes to Samantha's eating habits. When Samantha recently got gastroenteritis, he exclaimed 'Imagine how much weight you're losing! This is great for your figure!'
Last year, Pascal gave her an exercise bike for Christmas - and checks how many kilometres she's cycled and how long it's taken her on a daily basis.
He even checks her shopping bags when she returns from the supermarket.
The Guardian are getting their feministy knickers in a twist. Again. This time they're having a pop at Rebekah Wade for choosing to take her husband's name when she got married. She's Rebekah Brooks now, but according to Michele Hanson, she's "letting down thousands of women". Er, why exactly? What's wrong with taking your husband's name when you get married?
