Does Mark Zuckerberg have a prenuptial agreement?

I’m sure you have all heard that Facebook’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg, has wed longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan.

Zuckerberg is a very rich man.  It is not known at this time if the couple signed a prenup California is a community property state and according to California law, “spouses own- and owe- everything equally, regardless of who earns or spends the income.”

However, this only applies to assets acquired during the marriage.  All the money Zuckerberg recently made during his Facebook IPO would remain his.  He recently exercised 60 million of his 120 million stock options; he still has 60 million.  What happens to those stock options?  We can only sit and wait.  None of this will matter if the couple has, indeed, signed a prenup.
