During the anti-gay 'March For Marriage' rally today in Washington D.C., ThinkProgress.org asked several attendees how gay marriage has personally affected their marriages, since it became legal in Massachusetts a decade ago (video below).

The attendees seemed to be confused by the question and couldn't state how gay marriage had personally affected them, although one man claimed that the gay marriage debate had brought he and his wife closer in unity against the ban on gay marriage.

Ironically, as noted by The Atlantic, attorney Charles Cooper -- who argued against gay marriage in the U.S. Supreme Court today -- was also stumped when asked by Justice Kagan how gay marriage undermines marriage between straight people.

Cooper admitted it was “impossible for anyone to foresee the future accurately enough to know exactly what those real-world consequences would be.”
