They have always said that they'll get married when gay marriage becomes legal in all states.

So in love: Brad Pitt, pictured over the weekend, has revealed he would like to marry his partner of six years, Angelina Jolie
When asked whether he would marry Angelina, the Oscar nominated actor made a stunning admission: 'We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out.'
Giving the first indication that a wedding to the beautiful actress might come sooner rather than later.
He said their six children were one of the significant factors behind his change of heart.
Brad said: 'We’d actually like to, and it seems to mean more and more to our kids.
'It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.'
But he didn't go as far as saying he had asked Angelina to marry him, adding: 'I'm not going to go any further.'

However, despite his U-turn, he reiterated his support for gay marriage.
'But to be in love with someone and
be raising a family with someone and want to make that commitment and
not be able to is ludicrous, just ludicrous.'
On the Ellen DeGeneres show in September, Brad told the host: 'I've said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this county has the right to get married.
'We live in this great country that is about freedom. It is
defined by our freedom and equality and yet we allow this discrimination
to go on everyday and that's not what we're about. That's not what
makes us great. Until that is reversed. I just don't get it.'
They started dating after starring in
the 2004 film, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, while Brad was still married to Friends
star Jennifer Aniston.
In April 2005, two months
after Jen filed for divorce, the first pictures emerged of the couple

Although he denies adultery, Brad has said he fell in love with the actress on set.

and get that lightning bolt that says “We can help this person; we could
do something here,” then absolutely.'
