Gates' To Divorce

Recommended Posts

 I'm not sure where to put this. Feel free to move.



This could get interesting!

Bill, Melinda Gates announce split after nearly 30 years together

Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda, will separate after 27 years together, the billionaire announced on Monday, ending a marriage that launched a globe-spanning philanthropic and humanitarian empire. 


Via Twitter, Gates — one of the world's wealthiest men — said that he and his wife remain committed to their "mission" as philanthropists, but "we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives."


The Microsoft founder, who emerged as a leading voice in the fight against COVID-19 and frequently weighs in on matters impacting the environment and developing nations, currently sits at number four on Forbes' list of the wealthiest people, with an estimated net worth of over $130 billion as of Monday.


The Gates' divorce raises questions about how one of the world's largest fortunes will be divided, but Amazon (AMZN) founder Jeff Bezos provides a useful test case of how the fruits of the Gates' union will be divided: Bezos' split from ex-wife Mackenzie Scott resulted in the latter instantly becoming the one of the wealthiest women in the world.

I’m not sure that’s a apt statement.  Perhaps they are divorcing specifically because he DID try to rule his family.  Loving husbands do not rule their wives or their families.  They partner lovingly with them.

I just hope she lets "things" slip out. Or if she is in lock step with him. She will probably be under a gag order though. It could be interesting what she could divulge.

LOL.......  "rule" notwithstanding, I think it was humorous.  It's really best for human beings to quit trying to RULE anything.  "Leadership"  .....in the best sense of that word.....that is what is a scare commodity.
