Bill Gates confirmed on Twitter that he and Melinda divorced after 27 years of marriage.
The couple met in the late 1980s when Melinda came to work at Microsoft, and it soon became clear that she was the woman Gates was going to marry.
They were married in Hawaii on January 1, 1994. Judging from the photos and videos at the wedding, they have an endless love. Gates also wanted to sing a song to his wife, but he was embarrassed because he was not good at being a singer.
The couple have three children-Jennifer, Rory and Phoebe. Melinda left Microsoft in 1996 to take care of the family.
Recall that Gates made a statement on Twitter tonight confirming the divorce.
“After much deliberation and a lot of work for our relationship, we decided to end the marriage. In the past 27 years, we have raised three amazing children and built a world-wide service for everyone. The foundation leads a healthy, productive life,” he wrote.
