TM: For better or worse, you've also grown into a reputation as something of an authority on marriage itself.Texas Monthly concludes the article by posting the above weed-equality avatar and inviting readers to use it themselves.
WN: I've been there and back a few times. It's not perfect, so why should we expect it to be perfect for everybody?
TM: But to be clear, you think everybody should be able to get married?
WN: Absolutely. I never thought of marriage as something only for men and women. But I'd never marry a guy I didn't like.

TM: And what do you think they'll say when they look back on this?
WN: We'll look back and say it was crazy that we ever even argued about this
