Mark Zuckerberg is a household name in social networking. The Facebook boss is known for being a workaholic, an entrepreneur, and a philanthropist. But have you ever wondered about the romantic side of him? Yes, he did have one, and still does, and he had a beautiful love story to tell.
Her name is Priscilla Chan. She was a freshman at Harvard, the same school where Mark was studying Psychology and Computer Science. At a fraternity party, the two met at a most unusual place – waiting in line for the restroom. The two started a conversation and eventually ended dating each other. But their newfound togetherness was cut short when Mark discontinued college to manage his own company ‘The Facebook’. Priscilla went on to continue her course of pediatrics. In spite of their physical separation, their love for each other continued to flourish. Though many challenges came between them, they always stood by each other.
As the fortune of Mark became vast, so did his love for Priscilla and vice versa. When Mark has to move to California, Priscilla followed him and pursued her medical studies at the University of California to be near her man. Soon after, Priscilla moved in with Mark at his Palo Alto house. Their relationship was filled with many special moments of their romantic trips and parties – even home time with their pet was special.
On May 19, 2012, Priscilla graduated from medical school. This was also the day they got married in Mark’s backyard with 100 guests. It was a surprise wedding which was only made known to the public when Priscilla updated her Facebook status to the billionaire’s wife. Even in their married life, Priscilla has been a big influence to Mark. She inspired him to create an organ donation section of Facebook.
And as if being a young rich husband is not enough, Mark made a thanksgiving video to her wife on their 11-year anniversary of togetherness.
