"Are you going to get married?" Ellen asked, directly. Parsons hesitated, "I don't know," he stuttered, obviously surprised by the question. "That's a hard one. You get used to your life as it is," he continued.

"But it gets better when you're married, it really does," Ellen continued, pushing the issue. "Eleven years is enough time to know!"

An embarrassed looking Parsons reminded the show host that his boyfriend was watching the show.

"I'm not saying he's been discouraging it," the Normal Heart actor added, flustered. "I feel like I haven't been enthusiastic enough about it and I feel like I'm a loser for the cause."
