You’d think she was a plant to destroy Facebook
Mark Zuckerberg married his long-term girlfriend Priscilla Chan last weekend in the back yard of their home. My first thought was “how lovely for them”, but it seems most people’s first thought was “I wonder what the pre-nup says”.
Donald Trump can be expected to head straight for this crass territory, and immediately obliged. But AM reported this morning that after an overnight plunge in Facebook’s post-IPO value, “investors are starting to ask for details about any pre nuptial agreement and what Mark Zuckerberg’s changed status might mean for the company’s long term value and stability.”
I wonder how Priscilla is enjoying her honeymoon, knowing the entire investment world is speculating on how much she could take her beloved for if she decides to cut and run.
The assumption that Chan, who has just completed her medical degree and is about to start training as a pediatrician, is someone from whom Facebook must be protected is horrible.
As this cravenly-put piece by Reuters pointed out:
Though there’s no indication that the Zuckerberg wedding had anything to do with the IPO, its timing couldn’t have been better. At least if the pair ever decide to divorce.
The ice hasn’t even melted in the happy couple’s margaritas, but the piece when on to explain that because the wedding came after the IPO, it’s now easier to place a dollar figure on Zuckerberg’s wealth at the time of their marriage, against which to compare his wealth at the time of their (possible) divorce.
Whether or not these legal repercussions had any impact on the timing of the Zuckerberg wedding is unknown. But if they weren’t, the Zuck may have just lucked out.
Maybe Zuckerberg “lucked out” by finding a woman who loves him and supports him and also has her own life. If you want to know more about Priscilla Chan, take a look at this.
Considering a few billion has been wiped off her new husband’s wealth in the three days they’ve been married, Priscilla’s probably got other things to do than plot her inevitable trip to Family Court.
