Priscilla Chan has long been known as the girlfriend of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, but on Saturday she updated her status to the billionaire's wife.
Given their nine-year relationship which started when she was a freshman and he a sophomore at Harvard, she has known the man behind the massive social networking site well before he became one of the richest people in the world。
The surprise announcement of the couple's wedding last weekend has prompted a closer inspection of the woman who is now effectively one of the first ladies of Silicon Valley。
1. She's been with Zuck since college她跟小扎从大学就开始恋爱了
Although "The Social Network" made it seem as though Zuckerberg's ambition was driven in part by his failures with women, the truth is he and Chan have been dating since their college days at Harvard. They met at a party while waiting in line for the bathroom; Chan later told The New Yorker that she thought Zuckerberg was "this nerdy guy who was just a little bit out there."
2. He offered her a job, she offered him candy他曾邀请她来Facebook工作，而她给了他一颗糖
When Zuckerberg left Harvard in 2005 to focus on Facebook full time, he began recruiting classmates for positions at the facebook (as it was then known). According to The Harvard Crimson, Zuckerberg was sitting outside after a campus recruiting session when Chan walked by。
2005年小扎离开哈佛，开始全身心投入于自己的公司。当时他曾广泛在校友中招聘同事(当时的Facebook已经小有名气)。 据哈佛校报称， 有次招聘会结束后，小扎坐在那儿，看到陈正好经过，于是他叫住了她：
"Hey Priscilla, do you want a job at the facebook?" Zuckerberg asked a passing friend。
"I'd love a job at facebook," Priscilla Chan responded, offering him a Twizzler。
3. Their relationship has rules他们还有恋爱条款
Author and tech journalist Sarah Lacy has written that Chan has imposed strict rules on her relationship with Zuckerberg -- not because she doesn't trust him, but because he's such a workaholic. One of the top rules: "One date per week, a minimum of a hundred minutes of alone time, not in his apartment, and definitely not at Facebook."
4. She helped spark Zuckerberg's interest in China她燃起了小扎在中国拓展事业的兴趣
Chan, who is Chinese-American, brought Zuckerberg on a trip to China in 2010. (Their holiday included some business meetings, which prompted speculation about Facebook's interests in the Chinese market。) To prepare for the visit, Zuckerberg studied the Chinese language every morning。
5. She's on Facebook她也玩Facebook
That's a no-brainer, right? According to the publicly available portion of Chan's Facebook page, she's into cooking, photography, learning Spanish, working with kids and visiting warm locales。
