Opponents of marriage equality admit same-sex marriage has not impacted their own marriages at all

In May 2004, the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts ruled that the state’s prohibition on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.

In that time, the number of states legalizing marriage equality has risen to 9 states plus Washington, DC.

ThinkProgress asked opponents of equal rights for gays and lesbians today how 9 years of same-sex marriage has impacted their own marriages.

Want to take a guess what the answers were...?

During today’s Supreme Court case on marriage equality, the justices pressed Charles Cooper, the lawyer defending discrimination, on how exactly same-sex marriage somehow undermines marriage between straight people. He was unable to give a cogent response.
