Lena Dunham Reveals Why She And Jack Antonoff Aren't Married Yet

Cool your jets, everyone.

Lena Dunham made a public pledge on several occasions that she and her musician boyfriend Jack Antonoff wouldn't get married until gay couples had the right to do so.

So what happened when the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage on June 26? On an episode of "Ellen" that aired Friday, the "Girls" star told Degeneres that she and Antonoff were immediately flooded with texts from "friends, from our mothers, from our exercise instructors," telling them, "Finally it’s your time."

But the couple of four years didn't rush to the altar just because they could.

"We’re not going to suddenly just get engaged because it became legal," she said. "We better wait for a moment where we feel excited about this. And I’m excited to marry him at some point, but it felt like a lot of pressure to just go for it that day."

Dunham also offered a less serious, but totally valid reason for holding off.

"I also have to say I feel intimidated because I don’t want to espouse any stereotypes, but gay people are kind of killing it at weddings right now," she said. "They’re kind of winning at weddings. So I don’t want to go in and kind of pale in comparison."

Dunham and Antonoff first met in 2012 after being set up on a blind date by comedian Mike Birbiglia. The pair lives in Brooklyn with their dog Lamby.
