I can't see the difficulty. It seems pretty obvious to me that the answer to the question "Is a married person looking at an unmarried person?" is indeed "Yes". If Anne is married, George looking at her meets the criterion,if she isn't, Jack looking at her does.

If the vast majority of people don't see that it's a bit perturbing. But not surprising I suppose. Thinking logically isn't all that common.
