It doesn't make any difference whether George is looking at anyone.

I can't see how Jim's rephrasing of what I wrote changes anything, except syntactically.

Iif she's married, her looking at George counts as "married person looking at an unmarried person", if she's unmarried, Jack is the "married person looking at an unmarried person"

If Anne is married, Anne looking at George meets the criterion; if she isn't, Jack looking at her does.
