Hollywood screenwriter Dustin Lance Black praises his future husband, British Olympic diver Tom Daley, in a revealing new interview.

Black and Daley announced their engagement this week in the Times of London's Births, Marriages and Deaths section.

Daley, 21, who came out bisexual in a 2013 YouTube video, and Black, 41, started dating in the summer of that year.

“I met someone who completely gets me,” Black told Defining Marriage host Matt Baume. “I definitely know that we're better for having each other. We dream bigger. Things seem so much more possible together. Two and a half years in and it still feels like every day is a dream.”

On marriage equality, Black, a vocal advocate, said: “There's power in the word, that the word is understood by society and it means that when you say 'I'm married' or getting married, it's a promise you make to the person you love, and I think that promise creates so … much potential, and is understood by so many people.”
