After 27 years of the best that life can offer as a super rich couple and after three children between them, Bill and Melinda Gates have decided to pull the plug on their marriage.
The news about the decision to end the marriage was broken late Monday night in a joint statement by the couple who are considered one of the most influential, impactful and iconic figures in the world.
The Statement reads:
“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 live healthy, productive lives.
“We continue to share a believe in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we believe we can no longer grow together as a couple in the next phase of our lives.
We ask for privacy and space for our family as we begin to navigate a new life,” the statement read.
