Bill and Melinda Gates divorce

BIll and Melinda Gates divorce. The co-founder of the software company Microsoft and his wife announced in a joint statement on Twitter that they decided to take this step “after careful consideration and much work on our relationship.” The couple has been married for 27 years. The split immediately raises questions about the future of the charity that 65-year-old Bill Gates and 56-year-old Melinda Gates head equally. The opinion gives the impression that not much should be changed.

They both continued to believe in the mission of the institution and wanted to continue working together there. “But we no longer believe that we can grow together as a couple in this next stage of our lives,” she added. The foundation itself did not wish to make any further comments upon request.
