It was once claimed by Sandberg, who is leaving her position as COO of Meta this September, that she could hardly envision dating or even contemplating marriage. Tom mentioned the same thing in a recent Instagram post he published to announce his nuptials to Sheryl Sandberg.

Sharing the picture, he said:
“After both experiencing loss, Sheryl and I weren’t sure we would ever find love again. Over the last three years, we’ve merged our lives and blended our families. Our wedding today was a dream come true.”
Sheryl, who has a son and a daughter, and Tom, who has three children as well, announced to everyone that “all 7 of us are getting married.” Instead of wedding gifts, the couple requested contributions to VOW and CARE, two organisations that support campaigns to end child marriage and fight poverty.
