Google co-founder Brin gets married in Bahamas


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Google co-founder Sergey Brin, one of the world's richest men, has reportedly ended his search for a lifelong partner.

Brin, 33, married Anne Wojcicki, a biotech entrepreneur whose sister was Google's first landlord, in a secret ceremony in the Bahamas earlier this month, the San Jose Mercury News reported Wednesday, citing several wedding guests who requested anonymity.

Brin, worth an estimated $16.6 billion, and Wojcicki swam out to a sandbar while most of the 60 guests traveled to the wedding site by boat, according to the newspaper. The couple wedded in a traditional Jewish ceremony, with Brin stomping on a glass as a symbol of faith and new beginnings.

When a reporter congratulated Brin on his marriage at a media event Wednesday, the Google co-founder said he wanted to keep the discussion focused on search. He was not wearing a ring.

Wojcicki's sister, Susan, an early Google employee, rented her Menlo Park garage to Brin and Google co-founder Larry Page in 1998 after they left Stanford University to launch the company. She later introduced the couple to each another.
