Bill Gates And Melinda Gates Are Splitting Up After 27 Years Of Marriage
Bill and Melinda Gates have announced that they are ending their marriage after 27 years.
In their social media posts on Monday from their personal accounts, and signed by the couple, the Gateses said that the decision came after a “great deal of thought and work.” But the Gateses no longer believe they can grow together as a couple in this “next phase” of their lives.
The end of the Gates’s marriage comes a little more than two years after another Seattle billionaire, Jeff Bezos, announced that he and his then-wife MacKenzie would divorce. Bezos, the world’s wealthiest person, is chief executive of the e-commerce giant Amazon and the owner of The Washington Post. Their divorce settlement, a year later, set a record, giving MacKenzie an Amazon stake worth roughly $36 billion at the time.
We wish both of them a happy and prosperous life ahead!
