Bill And Melinda Gates Divorced After 27 years

Bill Gates, One Of The World’s Richest Men, Whose Net Worth Is Estimated At More Than $130bn, And His Wife, Melinda, Announced Their Decision To End Their 27-year Marriage.

They made this announcement on Monday in a joint statement on their verified Twitter handle.

Which reads  “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made a decision to end our marriage. Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives.

“We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in the next phase of our lives.”

According to CNN, Bill is 65 years old while Melinda is 56, they met at Microsoft which Bill Gates founded. They started dating in 1987 after meeting at a New York trade show.

The couple got married on January 1, 1994, in Hawaii; Melinda left the company in 1996 to focus on starting their family.
