Facebook Adds Same-Sex Marriage Icons For Gay Couples

3 Jul

Although homosexual Facebook users have been able to select ‘In a Civil Union’ or ‘In a Domestic Partnership’ as their relationship status since February last year, this is the first they have been able to pick an icon for marriage, previously, upon changing your status to ‘married’, a timeline symbol depicting a heterosexual couple would appear.

The new icon arrived just in time for Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes to tie the knot, Chris and his new husband, Sean Eldridge, were among the first to use the brand new symbols to update their relationship status on the weekend. The couple got married on Saturday at their $5 million Garrison, New York, estate before hosting a lavish reception at Cipriani Wall Street for 400 guests, including Mark Zuckerberg and his new wife Priscilla Chan.

What a great idea!
