Bill and Melinda Gates have ended their marriage, but the foundation they started together remains.
The billionaire Microsoft founder announced plans to separate from his wife of 27 years in May 2021, and the divorce was finalized in August 2021.
Bill Gates tweeted, “After much thought and much effort about our relationship, we have decided to end our marriage.” We have raised amazing children and built the foundations that enable people around the world to live healthy and productive lives.”
