Out actor Zachary Quinto says marriage doesn't make sense for him personally right now.

The 37-year-old Quinto, who is best known for playing a young Spock in the 2009 Star Trek reboot and its sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, has been dating model Miles McMillan.

In a wide-ranging interview from Berlin with The Hollywood Reporter, Quinto was asked, “Is a marriage or children something you want”

I definitely want kids, for sure,” Quinto answered. “I gravitate toward the people in my life who have kids. I love fostering relationships with them and watching them discover the world and being a part of that. I definitely want that.”

He continued: “There are benefits to the institution of marriage. I personally am not a huge fanatic of marriage, whether it's gay or straight. Commitment and relationships are a very individual thing, and I don't stand to tell other people what to do or who to do it with, but for me, love is defined by two people in an intimate and personal way, and superimposing an institution on that isn't necessarily, for me, the most exciting idea. But then again, the fact that we've made such progress and marriage equality is very, very near and tangible and hopefully right around the corner – that frames it a little bit differently for me. It's something I have been an advocate for and a fighter for in the past eight years. I want to see that continue. And maybe there will come a day when it makes perfect sense for me personally. We'll see. … I don't think either of us feel that we have to hurry up and do this.”
