Beyoncé Knowles and Jay-Z

and longtime beau Jay-Z have taken out a marriage license in Scarsdale, N.Y., PEOPLE has learned.
According to a source, the pair obtained a license Tuesday morning. The document is valid for 60 days.
A rep for Beyoncé told PEOPLE, "No comment." Jay-Z's spokesperson could not be reached.
Beyoncé, 26, and Jay-Z, 38, have been dating since 2002, though the couple have stood reluctant to discuss their relationship publicly. Rumors about their romance began circulating after the singer appeared on Jay-Z's song "'03 Bonnie & Clyde," followed by collaborations on Beyoncé's solo hit "Crazy in Love," in 2003.
While the two have remained tight-lipped about the state of their romance, by no means has Beyoné brushed off talk of marriage. In December 2006, the singer told InStyle
, "You can't rush a man into anything – whether it's a relationship, marriage or having children."
Earlier that month the pair were besieged by rumors that they were all set to get hitched in the Caribbean – a rumor that was quickly scotched
by their reps.
