Watch: Kids explain gay marriage to Jimmy Kimmel

US television host Jimmy Kimmel took to the streets to ask kids what they think “gay marriage” is.

Following the US Supreme Court’s ruling last week that all couples have a constitutional right to marriage, Jimmy Kimmel conducted some research into younger people’s attitudes to same-sex marriage.

The results of the video are sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, but mainly just dispel the excuse “how do I explain same-sex marriage to my kids”, as a reason for opposing marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples.

One respondent was asked why two people would get married, and he said: “They love each other and just feel a connection”… When asked if it is a good thing that same-sex couples could marry, he just said: “Yeah”.

Another just said: “I know nothing about that yet”, and a third, when asked when two people should get married, just replied¬†“In the afternoon.”

Sound advice.
