Mark Zuckerberg and Wife Priscilla Chan Celebrate Anniversary in Rural Maine

In a post Friday, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg said his wife, Priscilla Chan, announced they are spending their five-year wedding anniversary in rural Maine.

“Some years we've gone to Japan or France. This year we're spending our honeymoon in rural Maine,” the post said.

According to WCSH-TV, Zuckerberg and his wife kept things low-keyed and planned a surprise wedding - disguised as a celebration for Chan’s graduation from medical school. Being a surprise, the CFO of Facebook was unaware of the wedding plans for May 19 when he told Zuckerberg that the company’s IPO process would be ready on May 18.

“With IPOs, the process goes on for a while and you just go public when everything is ready. When I originally set the date for our surprise, we had no idea when the IPO would be,” said Zuckerberg in the post.

The newlyweds had to cut their honeymoon short and later decided to do one every year in celebration.

WCSH-TV said that there’s no way to guess where exactly the couple will be staying considering Maine topped the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau data as the most "rural" state in the U.S., with 61.3 percent of the population living in "rural" areas.
