Since I married a Texan, can I consider myself a naturalized Texan? LOVE this state and will never leave it again!
Did you guys get caught up in the fires last year? I was watching the horse community mobilize on FB to get the animals out of the danger region - it was a wonderful thing to see. Not the fires, but the way people pulled together.
Marrying a Texan won't make you a Texan. I married a New Yorker, and if that makes me a New Yorker, I'm going to shoot myself. Doesn't mean you can't become a Texan, but it's not something you catch from a spouse.
It better not be.
