One Day After IPO Mark Zuckerberg Marries Long Time Girlfriend Priscilla Chan

On Friday Mark Zuckerberg posted one of his most important statuses ever as he posted: “listed a company on NASDAQ.”  On Saturday, the day after Facebook’s IPO, Mark Zuckerberg may have topped it, at least personally.  One that was simply a relationship change alerting the world of the surprise wedding to his girlfriend of nine-years, Priscilla Chan.

The status update had more than one million likes and 731 comments by Monday morning.   The marriage was a surprise as 100 guests were invited to what they thought was Chan’s graduation party.  Instead they were hit with the news that they were attending the wedding of the world’s newest multi-billionaire.

The couple also has a Hungarian Sheepdog, Beast, who has 560,000 likes on Facebook.
