The problem with the argument ‘same-sex marriage will harm the institution of marriage’ isn’t that it isn’t true, it’s just that so many other factors have already damaged the institution of marriage (easy divorce, out-of-wedlock births, the welfare state) that the additional harm caused by same-sex marriage seems minor by comparison.

It’s like saying the flu won’t harm a person because they are already riddled with cancer.
