On last night's Extra, rocker Melissa Etheridge revealed that she and longtime girlfriend Tammy Lynn Michaels plan to get married before the November election, when the California ballot will feature a proposition that could potentially deny gay couples the right to marry.

When asked about marriage in the Extra interview, Etheridge said, "Yes, we have four children and we're trying to find the right time."

Melissa and Tammy Lynn would be the third high-profile gay couple to marry in California, following Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi in late August and George Takei and Brad Altman in September.
