Billionaire couple Bill and Melinda Gates marriage has collapsed after 27 years of seeming blissful union.
The couple made this announcement on Sunday, May 3, from their personal accounts.
The Gates said the decision came after a “great deal of thought and work.”
They disclosed that they no longer believe they can grow together as a couple in this “next phase” of their lives.
The Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates, met Melinda French after she joined Microsoft in 1987. The two married on Jan. 1, 1994, and had three children together.
