The Oddly Specific Marriage Rule Behind Mark Zuckerberg’s Success

Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook used to be a loner. He now is married and is one rich man. Zuckerberg states that one person cannot change the world so he thinks that we can change it by doing it together. His wife and him have been together for 15 years and at the beginning they always made sure to spend at least 100 minutes of alone time each week and regular weekly date nights. He believes this is important to any marriage.

Key Takeaways:

  • Team up with others, because one person by themselves can not take on the world alone and brainstorming with others can really help build on what ideas you might have.
  • Make sure that you have regular date nights which can be beneficial in many ways to help manage stress and balance.
  • Take time to connect with each other, even if it is someone that you don’t see on a regular basis.

“There is plenty of research to support that having regular date nights (whether with a romantic partner or with friends) is beneficial to managing stress and maintaining work-life balance.”
