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:
Mark Zuckerberg just changed his Facebook status to "Married With A Ginormous Prenup"
Mark Zuckerberg got married after becoming a billionaire. Wonder what that prenup looks like?
Mark Zuckerberg better make his new wife sign a prenup
mark zuckerberg just got married today....I'd say congrats to his new wife for the come up but I'm sure he made her sign a prenup.
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
Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook got married. I would love to look at that prenup..it's probably thicker than the Beijing phonebook.
#manvswoman difference: Me: Mark Zuckerberg got married, it's about freakin' time! Husband: I hope he had a prenup.
