Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda announced on Monday they are getting divorced after a 27-year marriage.

The couple revealed the decision in a note on their social media accounts, saying their break up would not affect the work of their foundation and they would continue their joint work on the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which funds programmes in global health, education, and other causes. “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” they said in a joint statement, posted on each of their official accounts.

“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.” At present, the financial details of the decision are not immediately clear.

In 2020, for Valentine’s Day, Bill Gates posted a picture on Instagram showing him standing with Melinda Gates. “I couldn’t ask for a better partner on this journey,” the caption mentioned.
