Bill and Melinda Gates have announced that they are ending their marriage after 27 years of marriage.
In a tweet this Monday, from their personal accounts, the Gates family announced that the decision came after a “great deal of thought and work.” But the Gateses no longer believe they can grow together as a couple in this “next phase” of their lives.
