“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 the 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”– Melinda Gates and Bill Gates
