The founder of the American corporation Microsoft Bill Gates and his wife Melinda announced the divorce. Gates posted the corresponding publication on Twitter.
“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 that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives,” they tweeted.
Bill Gates and Melinda French got married in 1994. They shared three children.
Since 2000, Bill and Melinda Gates have led a charitable foundation with nearly $ 50 million. The organization's main areas of work include the fight against dangerous diseases in developing countries, health and education programs in the United States. Through the fund, hundreds of millions of dollars have been allocated to develop a vaccine against the coronavirus and to support the most vulnerable in the pandemic.
Founded in 1975 by Gates and Paul Allen, Microsoft is one of the world's largest manufacturers of software for devices ranging from personal computers to mobile phones. Microsoft is headquartered in Redmond, Washington.
