I'd love to see the divorce deal to split their worldly goods....

I don't know why, but I felt particularly bad about this news.

They share responsibility for an incredible foundation that has focuses largely on poverty and disease in third world countries - particularly on providing access to medical treatments and vaccines.

I hope that they can continue to collaborate well.

I just realised she's only 56. I thought they were roughly the same age. She has been pushing a very independent feminist message in the last few years so perhaps she just wants to go out on her own as an individual rather than be his other half.

Re: Bill and Linda Gates Divorcing.

yes but there are so many other questions it begs? what real commitment have they been making to each other in the 27 years was it? has so much energy been put into other things instead of nurturing each other and their kids of course. I am also empowered but also puzzled when I see those rare 80-90 yr olds still together with large family and when interviewed have all the right answers?

I am saddened of course - been there done that

It's always sad when this happens but I'm not sure why it should be in the News.

There. That is the likely cause of the breakup. IMO, once a very feminist message is being touted, the writing is on the wall.

Re: Bill and Linda Gates Divorcing.

Hi

Things happen, often not what we want.

My ex Left on my 50th birthday, the day I woke up from my quadruple bypass.

You have had the best of me, but I do not want to spend the rest of my life with you.

That is life, it does not always work out the way you want.

It is all about making the best of what happens.
