Mrs. Zuck May Not Be A Billionaire

Mark Zuckerberg and his girlfriend Priscilla Chan

Priscilla Chan, who married Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Saturday, is not a billionaire.

This is despite her husband’s $20 billion stake in Facebook.

The New York Times is on it:

The new Mrs. Mark Zuckerberg might not have to worry much about money, but that doesn’t mean she is automatically a billionaire.

… According to matrimonial law experts, is that whatever Mr. Zuckerberg earned before the marriage is still solely his property afterward.

California is one of fewer than a dozen states that follow community property laws, which specifically outline how property is divided between two spouses (or, in some cases, registered domestic partners).
