Billionaire benefactors Bill and Melinda Gates, co-founders of one of the world’s largest private charitable foundations, filed for divorce on Monday after 27 years of marriage but pledged to continue their philanthropic work together.
“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” Bill (65) and Melinda Gates (56) reported on Twitter.
Their relationship began in the 1980s, when Melinda Bill joined Microsoft, BBC News recalls.
According to Forbes magazine, Bill Gates ranks the fourth wealthiest person in the world. His fortune is estimated at $ 124 billion.
By know the probable cause of the couple’s divorce has become public. Although no hard evidence is not available, but several family acquaintances have suggested that the divorce was allegedly caused by the fact that Bill found in Melinda’s office desk an unbelievable object.
Allegedly Bill found the brand new Apple’s MacBook Air laptop on his wife’s office desk! Using Apple’s products in their home was absolutely unacceptable and considered worse than a death sin!
Bill Gates, a major owner of the Microsoft Corporation, has considered Apple’s Mac computers and iPhones to be its biggest competitors for some thirty years.
For years, Bill Gates has followed the principle that his home in Medina, Washington, is one of the few completely Apple-free zones in the world. That is why Bill Gates was extremely upset when he found a MacBook laptop made by his biggest competitor in his wife’s office.
According to Bill Gates, such behavior — using Apple’s MacBook in their shared home — was a complete abandonment of the basic ground principles of their marriage, even worse than simple unfaithfulness.
Allegedly Bill considered Melinda’s step so unforgivable that the couple had no choice but to divorce.
Now the whole world is watching closely how one of the wealthiest couples in the world will share their great fortune.
