Brandon Morgan, Gay U.S. Marine In Viral Kissing Photograph, Gets Engaged To Dalan Wells (VIDEO)

Great news for the U.S. Marine caught in a passionate lip-lock with his boyfriend last year in the photo seen around the world: he's engaged!

As Towleroad first reported, Marine Sgt. Brandon Morgan popped the question to longtime partner Dalan Wells just a year after a snapshot of their romantic reunion became a global phenomenon on Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets last year after being hailed as emblematic of the post-"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" mindset in the U.S.

Morgan and Wells' engagement follows the fairytale wedding of Matthew Phelps and Ben Schock, who tied the knot in a stylish Seattle ceremony over Memorial Day weekend. Phelps, an active U.S. Marine, and Schock made headlines in December when they became the first same-sex couple to get engaged at the White House.

Check out video of the romantic proposal above, and take a look at the famous photo below:
