Melinda and Bill Gates have vowed to raise their three Children together and continue with their foundation despite divorce.
She said this on Monday night after Bill Gates announced their resolve to quit the 27-year-old marriage.
The Couple also promised to built a foundation that works all over the world to enable people live healthy and productive lives.
“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage. 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 live healthy, and 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. We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life”, Melinda told her fans Facebook.
In 1987, an unmarried Gates became the youngest American Billionaire, a record he held until Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder came to the billionaire status in 2007.
