One of the wealthiest young men in America, Mark Zuckerberg, finally tied the knot. On May 19, Zuckerberg took Priscilla Chan as his lawfully wedded wife.
The couple met back during their time spent at Harvard and dated off and on for the next nine years. Chan required that they spend 100 minutes a week together, a date night, and an annual two-week vacation. Zuckerberg and Chan finally married in the backyard of their $7 million estate in Palo Alto, Calif.
Behind Chan’s $4,700 Claire Pettibone dress and the sushi and mexican dinner served to only 100 guests, what does it mean?
Some speculate that the wedding is just another milestone in Zuckerberg’s life with no real connection to Facebook. Others argue another story.
The timing of Zuckerberg’s nuptials (May 19) and the Facebook’s IPO (May 18) may have been trying to show investors one thing. Facebook is finally growing up. With it shaky beginning’s in Zuckerberg’s Harvard dorm room, it has now grown to an essential tool in communication with 845 million users worldwide.
Zuckerberg has had to fight in and out court to push his company forward. He had to do some major public relations work after the release of The Social Network. He battled thousands of unhappy users with privacy laws.
According to NY Times, Zuckerberg plans to stay as the chief executive for the long haul. He has officially turned in his trademark hoodie for a suit and tie. Interviews with mentors, enemies and friends have foreshadow what is most likely and hopefully will be a successful feature.
Even though I am sure his marriage is full of love, as well as the tradition of lace and roses, paired with the IPO, maybe our own Mark Zuckerberg is finally maturing and this was the last step so we can finally trust him.
