Mark Zuckerberg met his wife Priscilla Chan in college at a fraternity party. They were both in line for the bathroom.
Zuckerberg then took her on a date. Chan recalled the line he dropped on her to “Today’s” Savannah Guthrie:
“On our first date, he told me that he’d rather go on a date with me than finish his take-home midterm,” she said.
Chan, who was studious and got voted “class genius” in high school, says “the type-A first child in me was appalled.”
When they met, Chan says Zuckerberg thought he might get kicked out of school for a prank he pulled (the prank was likely “Face Mash,” a hot-or-not for students on campus), so she thought he was kind of a slacker.
Apparently, she got over it. The pair got married right after Facebook went public.
