The Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates in a tweet announced that soon he would be parted away from his wife Melinda French Gates. But, their decision will not affect the charitable foundation the couple started together. Both will continue to work together for one of the world’s largest foundations “Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation” that they began two decades ago.
“We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life,” Said Bill Gates.

Melinda met him in Microsoft Company when she was working as a product manager. The two fell in love and married in 1994. Both shares similar belief and interest that had kept the couple together however things didn’t go well longer.
In the tweets, both mentioned how their marriage didn’t work even after putting in lots of effort, and thus ending it would be a better deal.
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has, however, improved their relationship a bit. The charitable foundation works on global health, educational, and development issues.
Bill Gates had completely stepped down from the responsibilities as CEO of Microsoft after the launch of the foundation in 2000. And now when a couple has decided to separate their ways, the foundation may face a little impact as expected.
