On Monday comes the news that shocks everyone with the suddenness. Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates are taking a divorce after 27 long and successful years of a fruitful marriage that bore 3 children and established a global foundation that has helped millions. In a joint statement the couple announced, “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." 

The entire statement read, “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the 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 we will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow as a couple in this next phase of our lives. We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life.”

It was a meeting in 1987 at the New York trade show where Bill and Melinda met and later started dating. Melinda was working in Microsoft as General Manager of Information products in the ’90s. In 1994, the couple got married at an exotic wedding in Hawaii and two years later Melinda quit Microsoft and decided to focus on the family. The prolific Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was established in 2000 and by 2014, it was estimated that they have poured in over $28 billion in the foundation. In 2020 when the fight against the COVID 19 began, the foundation donated $250 million for various aspects of the pandemic.

When a man starts to take his wife for granted and as time goes along in the marriage, a caring loving partnership will come to an end which will eventually lead to loneliness and separation becomes a reality!
