And This Affects You ... How? 

It’s a simple, straightforward question asked countless times by me and thousands—if not millions—of other Americans. However, I’ve yet to see a simple, straightforward answer.

Without resorting to tangential references to religious scriptures, which have no place in civil law, will someone please explain how my friend’s same-sex marriage or the institution of same-sex marriage negatively affects my heterosexual marriage or the institution of heterosexual marriage?

Could it be that, without bringing personal religious beliefs into the question of marriage equality, there is no negative effect?
