Bill and Melinda Gates are in some ways an odd couple.
They have made the decision to get divorced.
Divorce is a double edged sword, in that I don’t know if I’m happy for them or a bit sad.
To complicate matters as far as divorce is concerned, they will soon find out as other couples have, who their true friends are/were.
My guess would be that many so called friends got off on saying that they had dinner with the Bill and Malinda.
The who’s next phenomenon?
Meaning that divorces can happen in clusters among friends.
You wake up one morning and think everything is fine and the first words out of her mouth are, “I want to get divorced,” or vice versa.
Bill and Melinda Gates, who jointly run the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s largest private philanthropic foundation, announced on Monday they will divorce after 27 years of marriage.

The Microsoft co-founder tweeted that despite “a lot of work on our relationship” the two decided to end their marriage because they “no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.”
The former couple will continue to work together at their foundation that “works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives.”
Bill Gates stepped down from Microsoft in 2020 to focus on the Gates Foundation during the coronavirus pandemic.
