Bill and Melinda Gates met while working at Microsoft and married in 1994. The couple, who vowed to give up more than half of their money, will continue to collaborate on charitable endeavours. The financial ramifications are not readily apparent.
Bill Gates, co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, and his partner, Melinda French Gates, announced their divorce on Twitter on Monday. The two also continue to collaborate on philanthropic projects addressing education, gender equity, and health care.
“After much thinking and work on our relationship, we have decided to end our marriage,” Bill and Melinda Gates said in a statement that Bill Gates tweeted out.
“Over the last 27 years, we have raised three amazing children and built a foundation that operates all over the world to help all people live safe, meaningful lives. We really believe in the goal and will continue to work together at the base, but we no longer believe we will flourish as a pair together in this next stage of our lives. As we continue to navigate this new life, we request space and privacy for our family.”

For more commentary on this:
Did Bill start outsourcing her services?
Well, that will certainly be true in Bill's case.
Boy, is that post of yours spot on.
Two different trails of evil indeed, when you look at the causes the Bill and Melinda Gates gives money to.
It’s no wonder, Melinda looks more and more like a man each day.
The Clintons outlasted them-lol.
LOL. That was the funniest routine.
“...stay at Holiday Inn Express.”
Woah there. I stay at Holiday Inn Express frequently for business travel, most recently in Fort Dodge, IA. Fort Dodge isn’t much to look at but the hotel was great. How about we give Bill and Melinda each their own tent on Skid Row in LA instead?
