There have been great reactions on social media after the American business magnate, software developer, investor, author, and philanthropist, and also the co-founder of Microsoft William Henry Gates also known as Bill Gates announced his separation from his wife Melinda Gates.
Bill Gates took to his social media handle to announce that he and his wife, Melinda Gates who have spent the last twenty-seven years together as husband and wife are getting a divorce.
According to him, the decision of going on separate ways have been discussed and thought over before the decision to separate came up as the last resort. He also disclosed that although he will be separated from his wife, they will still be working at the foundation together.
He wrote on Twitter, “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 to 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.”
Social media users have reacted differently to the news…..
@Iamtimelessbosslady: This goes a long way to prove that marriages/relationships don’t work bcox of money. In case you’re still thinking of getting married to that rich man whom you know you don’t love but feels it’ll work bcox of the money, you’ll end up divorcing someday even if it takes 100 years.
