“My parents have been married for 45 years and I always knew that was something that I wanted. I want our children to say, ‘My daddies are married.’ We wanted to feel like a complete package.” – Eric LaBonté

This week’s cover story, ‘How Gay Marriage Won,’ explores the dramatic cultural shift towards recognizing same-sex unions. We’re asking our followers to share their stories and photos with us.

Why is marriage important to you? Share a photo that symbolizes your commitment to each other – whether it’s a wedding photo, a picture of your family or just an image that captures your love for one another. Post your photo to Tumblr using the hashtag #TIMEGayMarriage and you could appear on TIME.com
