Lena Dunham and her boyfriend, Jack Antonoff, may be heading down the aisle sooner rather than later now that same-sex couples can get married in all 50 states. While they aren’t even engaged, the “Girls” creator and star has previously said she wouldn’t wed her boyfriend of three years until everyone (gay and straight) could legally marry in any state. Well, Dunham’s wish came true on Friday when, as Gossip Cop reported, the Supreme Court ruled that it was lifting bans against same-sex marriages.

Dunham, whose sister Grace came out as lesbian when she was 17 years old, celebrated the historic occasion by tweeting at Antonoff, “Get on it, yo.” The tweet was presumably in reference to him finally proposing. In other tweets, Dunham wrote, “Woke up to learn that love is free! Thank you to all those who fought so hard to make this historic moment happen. Weddings are about to get a lot less boring. Let’s use this victory as a reminder to keep pushing for equality on every frontier. We have the power!”

Antonoff was also clearly excited about the Supreme Court’s ruling, noting in a series of tweets, “Just woke up to the news! Overwhelmed. JUNE 26th remember forever. Gonna tweet something I never thought I would: USA USA USA USA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” He added, “So many amazing people worked tirelessly for decades for this. In awe of them today and always. Marriage includes adoption rights, tax benefits/general benefits and over 1000 more rights and benefits. This is survival for many couples.”
