It has come to my attention that my generation believes if a relationship is not "Facebook official," then the relationship is not real. This means that if the "in a relationship" box is not checked off on a profile, then the relationship is nonexistent. When did Facebook take over our lives?

Meanwhile, others are concerned that she's doomed to a lifetime of inferiority since she clearly doesn't have as much wealth or visibility as her billionaire husband. So, which one will it be?
Mark Zuckerberg, 28, married his long-time girlfriend Priscilla Chan, 27, on Saturday. The couple invited under 100 friends and family members to celebrate what they thought was Chan's graduation from medical school. When the guests arrived, they were in for a romantic surprise!
