Mark Zuckerberg Advised By Donald Trump To Set Up Prenuptial Agreement

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan married this weekend. It was a lovely wedding and we all wish him the best. There are some people, however, who think that Zuckerberg should start planning ahead for a potential divorce.

Donald Trump, speaking to CNBC last Tuesday, questioned whether or not the Facebook founder had set up a prenuptial agreement yet. This was before the marriage was even announced because the whole thing was still up in the air until Saturday. Trump said that the IPO was going to make Zuckerberg worth $19 billion and that Chan could sue him for half of that in any potential divorce proceedings. Here’s his take on the matter:

“So he’s gonna be worth like $18, $19 billion, you’re telling me he’s got a girlfriend … does he get a prenuptial agreement? They get married, and then for some reason over the next couple of years they get divorced and then she sues him for $10 billion and she hits the jackpot … In New York, she would get a big chunk of what he has.”

Going even further, Trump offered his own assistance in the writing of any prenuptial agreement. He called himself an expert on the subject. He should be after being married three times with two divorces that were handled by prenuptial agreements. He even makes reference to a friend who gives $80 million to every divorced wife.

Here’s the interview where Trump offers his advice to the young billionaire. Do you think it’s too early to begin talking about prenuptial agreements? I certainly think so, but a man like Trump has a right to be concerned over ex-wives trying to take their husband’s fortune. The question now is whether or not Zuckerberg has the same feelings towards his wife.

As always, the users of Twitter have their own feelings on the matter:

I can only assume that Mark Zuckerberg’s prenup is more ironclad than Robert Downey Jr.

Depending on the prenup, if Mark Zuckerberg gets divorced, his marriage could turn into the world’s most expensive Asian fetish

Another example of the #manvswoman difference: Me: Mark Zuckerberg got married, it’s about freakin’ time! Husband: I hope he had a prenup.

    If he didn’t have her sign a prenup, then he’s really not the right person to be running a company like Facebook. He would then be the kind of person who should head up R&D, but not run the company.

    If the wife is not a Chinese, would so many people have reacted this way. Honestly, the evil knights and barons and the evil creatures they keep in the basement of their castles hate Chinese above all other people in the world. And why is this so? Because there are two major types of Chinese: the stupid + ignorant (sometimes evil) and the good + almost godly. It is the second type of Chinese that the evil knights and barons and their creatures hate. If all Chinese were the first type, they would probably not mind them. Obviously, Pricilla Chan is the second type of Chinese and that’s why the evil ones hate her so much.

      This has nothing to do with her being Chinese, this has everything to do with her being born with a vagina.

    Pre-Nups are only useful (to the man) if the woman actually agrees to sign it. And even then, a lawyer can make the case that she signed it under duress.

    She already lives with him as his common-law wife in a luxurious lifestyle that most people in the world can’t even imagine.

    So the only way to force her to sign a pre-nup is to tell her he’ll evict her if she doesn’t sign. That could be viewed as extortion and render the pre-nup un-enforcable.

    Basically, a woman has you by the balls as soon as you let her move in with you without a contract. This is especially true if she’s lived with you for 3 years or more.

      Basically, society has you by the balls so long as you were born with a penis. That’s really it.

    For #%$@’s sake, don’t marry someone unless you’re willing to risk it. ‘Oh no, I’ll only have ten billion left. However will I survive?!’ … Give me a break.

    Women are always looking for the bigger, better deal. The average marriage lasts less than 5 years. More than 80% of marriages are innitiated by the wife, and in nearly every case, she ends up with the house, kids, half of his life savings (or more), likely the car as well, and up to 75% of all of his paychecks until the 18th birthday of the youngest child.

    A prep cook at Burger King would do well to get a prenup, let alone one of the wealthiest men in the world. In any altercation, the cards are stacked against men.

      Typo, 80% of DIVORCES are initiated by the wife. Not marriages. Sorry about that.
