Abby Wambach Shared One of the Reasons Why She Fell in Love with Wife Glennon Doyle
The couple tied the knot in 2017.
"To be in a relationship with another woman, there's a ton of talking all the time," Wambach, 38, told the outlet. "We're so passionate about the work that we're trying to accomplish. We're trying to solve for big problems, we want equality, and it calls for a lot of discussion between us."
"I think that's one of the reasons we fell in love with each other," Doyle, 43, added. "We were doing similar work before we even met, and it was like 'Whoa, you're like the business-slash-sports version of me.'"
"It's like she's Sporty Spice and I'm Spirit Spice," Doyle continued. "We have so many of the same beliefs and goals."
In the interview, the couple discussed being gay in conservative-leaning environments like Naples, Florida, where they reside.
"There's one other gay woman in Naples," Doyle joked, "and she lives with me."
"I just feel like we live in such a heightened time," Doyle continued. "That any time anybody expresses a desire to know more, it's labeled as hate. But really, there are so many people that just want to know: 'Why is everybody so gay all of the sudden?' So I find more curiosity than hate out there. Unless you're on Twitter."
