Bill & Melinda Gates Announce Divorce After 27 Years Of Marriage

Bill & Melinda Gates have raised three children together and have been married for 27 years. Together, the couple started the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation where they have provided aid all around the world. While their foundation has been called into question at times, they have continued with their philanthropic efforts and have always come across as a power couple of sorts.

Today, however, the couple made a bombshell announcement as Bill tweeted that the two would be getting a divorce. As they explain in their joint statement, the couple has been working on their relationship for a very long time although it seems like they have irreconcilable differences.
