Brad Pitt has been married to Angelina Jolie for less than two months, but their new commitment has taken their nine-year relationship to the next level.

"It was an amazing day," the Fury star, 50, told World News Tonight's David Muir about their Aug. 23 nuptials in an interview that airs Friday, "and I think there's an added security that comes with it."

Pitt and Jolie famously vowed not to marry until it was legal for gay couples to do the same (marriage equality resumed in their home state of California in 2013), which he was asked about as well. "That's just a no-brainer to me," he said in the interview, which was previewed on Good Morning America Friday morning. "That's the basis of our country. Equality for everyone."

While promoting his World War II flick, Pitt has been rocking his new hardware — his wedding band, which was designed by the couple's jeweler friend Robert Procop — all over the East Coast. The actor, who has been working on a new film with Jolie during their honeymoon, has also been fielding questions about his wedding and family, and answering them as succinctly as possible.

"It doesn't suck," he told Entertainment Tonight of married life at the Washington, D.C., premiere of the film on Wednesday. Elaborating a bit in the November issue GQ U.K., he said, "I wouldn't say [marriage is] just a title. There's more to it than that."

In the World News Tonight interview, Brad also talked about bringing his sons to the set of Fury and noted that his eldest, 13-year-old Maddox, is a World War II buff.

"My older son could tell you about any tank, any bomber. He could tell you about artillery," said Pitt, who recently spoke about his own love of guns. "So I got a brief tutorial from him when we started."
