He then pursued her for dates.
Both of them completed their graduation and then walked off to different destinations to achieve their dreams.
Justine was interested in writing, so she started working on her novel.
On the other hand, the business tycoon moved to Silicon Valley to work on his first dot-com company called Zip2.
Two months before their wedding, they had an appointment with a lawyer who was going to help them with the financial agreement.
In one of the essays in Marie Claire, Justine has written,
“Although I’d been dating a struggling 20-something entrepreneur, I was now engaged to a wealthy one.”
She also wrote,
“I made uneasy jokes that he was about to dump me for a supermodel. Instead, he proposed, getting down on bended knee on a street corner.”
The loving duo got married in 2000.

As Saxon’s father, Elon is a big name in the industry, but Elon has said that he was very much shy to speak in front of anyone.
