Mark Zuckerberg carved out a reputation for himself as a social networking king when he founded ‘Facebook’. Today, he is one of the youngest self-made billionaires. Just like any others, Mark too has an extraordinary romantic tale. Let’s learn about the beautiful love story of Mark Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan.
It all started when Mark Zuckerberg stumbled upon Priscilla Chan, a second-year university student from Boston, at a party hosted by Mark’s fraternity in 2003. Their first meeting was something unforgettable and quite interestingly, they met at a strange place- in the waiting line for the washroom.
Soon after that, these two students at Harvard started dating each other. After some time, Mark Zuckerberg took a massive decision in his life where he dropped out to run his own company, then captioned it as “The Facebook”.
Despite Mark Zuckerberg’s workaholic attitude, Priscilla always stood by him and supported him through and through. They fell in love when Mark Zuckerberg was nothing but just a college student, and they are still in love with each other when he has become a multi-billionaire.
Priscilla who specialises in paediatrics was the one who inspired Mark to promote organ donation on Facebook. Interestingly, she is also one of the first people to join Facebook (February 5, 2005). When Mark Zuckerberg moved to California, Priscilla also shifted there and became a medical student at the University of California.
The key to their stronger relationship is that Priscilla does not let the power go to her man’s head. It is to be noted that during their courtship days, it was reported that she laid out some strict rules for her boyfriend Mark. An excerpt from strict rules reads “a minimum of 100 minutes of alone time (not at Facebook) and one date night every week.”
Mark must have been an obedient boyfriend because very soon Priscilla moved in with him. Like many of us who just cannot help but choose Facebook for our major announcements, Mark also took the help of his creation to declare the news to all.
“Priscilla Chan is moving in this weekend.”
This beautiful love story crossed one more milestone in the year 2012 and it was when Mark’s girlfriend Priscilla graduated from medical school. They used this news to disclose the secrecy of their marriage. They had invited all their friends for a bash telling them that it was Priscilla’s graduation party.
In the presence of 100 guests, Mark Zuckerberg had announced it as the day of their wedding. Mark had presented a simple ruby wedding ring to his soulmate, which he had personally designed for her. The couple got married in the backyard of their home and travelled to Italy for their honeymoon.
Just like other guys who are in love, Mark Zuckerberg often uses his Facebook account to confess his love and feelings for his lovely sweetheart Priscilla, time and again. Mark took the entire nation by surprise when he updated his status on November 14, 2014, which reads: “I met an amazing girl on this day exactly 11 years ago. Priscilla, thank you for keeping me grounded, and for helping me keep my sense of wonder about the world as we grow together.”
It is really nice that Mark remembers dates and is not even shy of confessing love on social media site Facebook.
The ever-so beautiful love story of Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan is well and truly an inspiration for a lot of lovely couples all across the world.
The couple have been blessed with two daughters- Maxima Chan Zuckerberg (age 4 years) and August Chan Zuckerberg (age 2 years). The Youth wishes Mark Zuckerberg’s family a full of good luck and happiness.
