SSM: The Straw Man

Seen on Twitter today (and similar every day....)
If gay marriage weakens your heterosexual marriage, stop complaining about gay people and put some more effort into working on your marriage.
The strange thing is, I have not seen anyone arguing against re-defining and radically altering the Institution of Marriage because he or she believes that it will weaken his or her own marriage.  Likewise, objections to this radical change do not generally involve complaining about gay people.

Odd, that...

That said, working harder on one's own marriage is always good advice.

(For some of my deliberations on why SSM is a bad idea, see here.)
