Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook, changed his marital status on Facebook from single to married. Zuckerberg, who is turning 28 years tomorrow, married his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan yesterday.
This fortnight has been quite an exciting one for Zuckerberg. On 18th May, Facebook’s shares began trading in public, on 19th May he married his girlfriend and on 21st May he will celebrate his 28th birthday!
Zuckerberg organized a surprise ceremony in the backyard of his home in Palo Alto, California. The ceremony was guised as a celebration for Chan’s medical school graduation –but in reality it was wedding ceremony. Priscilla Chan has received a doctorate degree. About 100 guests were invited to the ceremony.
Although Zuckerberg is one of the richest persons in the world, he chose to give Chan a wedding ring made of simple ruby. He, however, designed the ring himself. Zuckerberg holds 56 percent shares of Facebook.
Zuckerberg had first met his wife during Harvard days. TechWelkin wishes the couple all the very best for their future.
