Sad news, but Bill you’re still the greatest man to walk this planet! Monogamy is unrealistic She is dating Jeff Bezos now. She cought a bigger 🐠... ;)

i hope melinda turns against bill gates so he will be jailed for masterminding covid pandemi Eish this is very awful after 27 years they decided to break up we don't know what they are going through in their marriage

Guess money can’t buy you “forever” love; on the other hand, perhaps friendship can preside love thru partnerships beyond marriage—in the name of love... How much she will get Thts a real question amazonvsmicrosoft divorce All rich people getting divorces. This isn't setting a good example for the younger generation.

I don't und separation now when whole life has been spent together, & wht is left there to separate. Ppl spend life together so long so dat they reap d benefits at old age, but here? At this age, i dont knw wat made them to take this harsh step, curious 2 no. They wer role models Makes me sad :( don't know why.

Not that surprised. His behavior recently, and really during the pandemic has been off the wall. Some of the things he has said made just wonder were his mind is. Sad anyway to see a couple breakup after so many years. We don't care. Melinda is always a good wife! Everything ends..... They seemed like a loving couple with so many common goals. Together they accomplished so much. I am sad to hear the news, and wish them the best.

WHY? FOR WHAT PURPOSE? HumanIsComplex. Everybody got to give everybody, some space. No surprise. He is not a nice person 27 years, they should stay married...that is a long time Well ... at least they have the money to start all over again Sorry to hear that !, but it happens. Enjoy life, who’ve earned it.

Who really wants to be the REST of their LIFE: living, breathing, sleeping and having SEX with the same person?🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔It's not that they didn't tried🙄🙄🙄🙄Marriage doesn't work, not even by having one the biggest fortunes out there🤷🤷🤷🤷🤷🤷 All the money in the world can't buy happiness. Serious question: What's the divorce rate for billionaires?

Good for them.

Pre-nup? If not she’s not settling for a measly $35 billion like the Bezos deal. The reason, is the China Virus, which Bill have contributed to spread out to the world. wow👶 It’s unbelievable? what? Bill Gates🙄 how to manage marriage 💑 i know it is not easy, but... I really hope it is a tax scheme that got them separating.

Not fair for Bill, he made the inventions and discoveries and Melinda will collect 50% of the fortune, 👎🏿 Her next stop🤔 The Apple Store😉 I have no certainty on this, but I hear when Melinda got her vaccine, it wasn't Bill's chip that was implanted Melinda Gates will be widow of the rich in the world. A lot of young people will be try to be married her. Does Anyone to register ? LOL

Her marriage works, the mother of three said, “because over the years she and Bill equally divide the unpaid work it takes to run a household”. Wrote USATODAY in 2019. Sad
