Bill And Melinda Gates Divorces After 27 Years Of Marriage

Bill and Melinda Gates are ending their marriage after 27 years, the pair announced in a statement on their verified Twitter accounts.

According to the statement, the two said they can no longer believe they can grow together as a couple.

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage.

“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,” the statement read.

The couple founded their philanthropic organization, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, together in 2000. Since then, CNN reports that the foundation has spent $53.8 billion on a wide range of initiatives related to global health, poverty alleviation and more, according to its website.
