I've heard people say it would destroy marriage. How exactly that could occur

How exactly is a gay marriage going to interfere with that?

I do, however, have a problem with those who think the institution will be degraded

No one has yet answered how, tangibly, gay marriage would effect them.

I'm failing to see what the big upset is. Marriage is going to be 'un-sacred' because gays are allowed to get married? Religion will no longer be what it is or mean what it does, because gays get married?
Marriage is an ancient and universal institution between a man and a woman that pre-exists law; marriage is part of the natural law intended for the begetting of children and therefore is the real deal and norm for family life and society.
What is at stake here is making "marriage" between 2 men or 2 women as normal and equivalent to between one man and one woman.
How would granting marriage rights to 2 men or 2 women threaten traditional marriage?
That would be declaring something that is pseudo or fake as real. Think of it in terms of displaying a zirconium next to a real diamond and declaring them of equal worth. The real diamond would lose its value and so it would be with marriage if the homosexual 'marraige' were declared the real thing.
Just as we have seen that cohabitation and exponential divorce rates have devalued the sacred commitment of marriage, this new counterfeit will too. Cohabitation and homosexual relationships are lots of things but foundational to society isn't one of them.
