after 27 years of marriage. You'd think that if you could make it that long that you'd be married forever but there you go. I was married for 11 years and thought that was forever too. They started the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation back in 2000 and it has donated an estimated $28 BILLION for philanthropic causes. I know vaccinating against malaria in Africa was a big cause of theirs. They donated money for COVID-19 research. They have done all sorts of good things with some of their money. (They are apparently worth $130 billion) Anyway I definitely didn't see this one coming.

I just hope that there will not be a huge battle for dividing the assets

That is a surprise. Somehow I don't think either of them will have any problem finding new partners!

I read about this. It seems that the billionaires have some sort of trouble in their marriages. Mrs. Bezos just got remarried.

We don't really know what happened inside their house but i guess they're old enough to take care of themselves

This makes me feel sad. They have all that money, yet not much quality time alone as a couple. What a shame!
