With Facebook’s initial public offering on Friday, headman Mark Zuckerberg officially became a billionaire, but to one woman, he now boasts another important title: husband. The twenty-eight-year-old married his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan in a ceremony in the couple’s backyard earlier today.
According to The New York Times, the small number of guests, reportedly under one hundred, were told the event would be to celebrate Chan’s graduation, but when they arrived, they were greeted with a simple wedding featuring catered sushi and lots of smiles.
Chan and Zuckberg met while they were both studying at Harvard almost a decade ago. Through hundred hour work weeks and one hundred billion dollar valuations, they stayed together and forged a solid partnership. Neither seems to be the most social of people and both have preferred to keep their relationship largely out of the headlines, today excluded of course.
Naturally, details of the wedding were posted on Facebook. Relationship statuses were changed, and one would imagine, the couple generated a whole lot of likes by saying “I Do”.
Pop Blend’s well-wishes go out to Zuckerberg and Chan. Having been together nine years already, their lives shouldn’t really be changed by today’s ceremony, but still, it’s nice to formally commit in front of friends and family. Here’s to hoping they celebrate a fiftieth anniversary in front of many of the same people.
