Timeline Of Unconditional Love: The Story Of Mark Zuckerberg And Priscilla Chan
The social networking king, Mark Zuckerberg, etched a name for himself with Facebook, on the day he launched it from his dormitory. Today, he is one of the youngest self-made billionaires, and one of the sharpest minds in the industry.
The man behind all this fame and glamour is not very different when it comes to love. Just like any other person, he too has a romantic tale of love to tell.
Mark Zuckerberg met his wife when he almost got kicked out of Harvard.
This was not a typical Zuckerberg meeting, which would affect millions on the Internet. Instead, it was the one that would change just two people on this planet. Mark Zuckerberg met Priscilla Chan, a sophomore from Boston, at a party hosted by Mark’s fraternity in 2003.
Interestingly, they met at quite a strange place- in the waiting line for the washroom. Soon, these two students at Harvard started dating each other. After some time, Mark took another major decision of his life; he dropped out to run his company, then titled – The Facebook.
They had a secret romantic wedding in the backyard.
Despite the distance and Mark’s inherent workaholic attitude, Priscilla always stood by him. They fell in love when Zuckerberg was nothing but a college student, and they are still in love when he has become a multi-billionaire.
Their love for each other and bond of commitment was much stronger than any fame or fortune. Priscilla who specializes in pediatrics was the one who inspired Zuckerberg to promote organ donation on Facebook. And yes, she is also one of the first people to join Facebook on February 5, 2005.
Their love was so intense that when Mark moved to California, Priscilla too shifted there and became a medical student at the University of California. Priscilla’s Facebook updates show the incredible trajectory of the relationship that they share.
The couple’s Facebook profiles also give a peek into some of their memorable moments, such as Priscilla’s graduation, their trips, their romantic walks and parties, and their home time with their pet – Beast. This beautiful love story crossed another milestone in 2012 when Priscilla graduated from medical school.
They used this news to reveal the secret of their marriage. They invited all their friends to a party telling them that it was Priscilla’s graduation party. And in the presence of 100 guests, Mark announced it as the day of their wedding.
Mark presented a simple ruby wedding ring to his love, which he had personally designed for her. The couple tied the knot in the backyard of their home and went to Italy for their honeymoon.
Mark promised Priscilla to celebrate honeymoon every year, and he keeps his promise.
I promised Priscilla that every year we’d have a honeymoon to celebrate our marriage. Some years we’ve gone to Japan or France. This year we’re traveling around the US, and we’ll be spending our honeymoon in rural Maine. One lesson I’ve learned from marriage is that exploring together just gets better over time.
When it comes to their relationship, Priscilla like any other girl does not let the power go to her man’s head. In their courtship days, it was reported that she had laid out strict rules for Mark. A minimum of 100 minutes of alone time and one date night every week topped that list.
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 help of his creation to declare the news to all.
Priscilla Chan is moving in this weekend.
Mark not only uses Facebook to express his feelings to his lady love but also to share the latest happenings of his life with the entire world. And, as soon as the two achieved parenthood, the super-happy dad immediately updated that too on his Facebook account.
The beautiful love story of Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan is certainly an inspiration for a lot of young lovebirds in the world. And we wish them a cradle full of good luck and happiness!
