So what? Societies have been redefining marriage for millenia. Many of the OT patriarchs favored by God had multiple wives. Modern American marriage-entered into by a man and a woman as equal partners, usually for reasons of love, which either one can seek to dissolve for reasons of incompatibility-is only a few decades old. Many people around the world and even in the US still enter into old-fashioned arranged and/or polygamous marriages. Gay marriage is just one more variation, hardly the threat to civilization its opponents like to portray it as.
