Actually the denial of federal recognication of same sex marriages in states where they are legal, has real consequences. Such as inherentence taxes that kick in. ONe recent example with an elderly woman who actually got engaged to the woman she eventually married when it because legal in her state ended up paying hundreds of thousands of dollars more in estate taxes. By the way, they got engaged back in the 1960s. They were hardly a "threat" to marriage that some believe.
