"We're thinking maybe we'll get married," Tomlin told E! News' Marc Malkin at the The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Pre-Emmy Performers Peer Group reception Monday night.
Tomlin said she didn't think she'd be able to get married in her lifetime, but she's happy she has the opportunity now.
"You don't really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice. Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very very happy about it."
But don't expect a traditional wedding from the 73-year-old funny lady.
"No rings, no bridal dresses," she said. "Maybe we'll be dressed like chickens."
"I’m not going to make a big national case of it which is what, really, everybody would like to do, or some people," she said at the time.
In 2008, she said: "Everybody in the industry was certainly aware of my sexuality and of Jane... In interviews I always reference Jane and talk about Jane, but they don’t always write about it.”
