Facebook has introduced a new Timeline feature that allows same-sex couples to declare their marriage status on the site with icons that best reflect the relationship, rather than the standard icon of a bride and a groom used for straight couples.

The feature was first noticed over the weekend when Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes married his partner Sean Eldridge. An icon of two grooms was added to Hughes’ Facebook Timeline to announce their wedding news.

Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg was among one of the 1,800 members that Liked Hughes’ update.
