The founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates and wife Melinda Gates has announced their divorce. The couple had announced that they are ending 27-year-long their togetherness. However, they said they will continue to work together at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Bill Gates, the 65-year-old co-founder of Microsoft Corp., is the world’s fourth-richest person.
Bill and Melinda has three children– Jennifer Katharine, , Rory John, , and Phoebe Adele, . The two of them met in the 1980s in New York. At that time Melinda was working in Microsoft and talked to each other during a dinner party. They got married in 1994.
” 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 will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together 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”, the two said in a brief statement posted on Twitter..
