"Melinda’s long journey away from Bill’s shadow is set to enter a new phase after the billionaire benefactors announced on Monday that they would divorce after 27 years, saying in a court filing that “this marriage is irretrievably broken.”"(...) "In 2015, she founded Pivotal Ventures, an investment company focused on women and families, while her book is centered on issues of female empowerment."The world is finally waking up to the fact that none of us can move forward when half of us are held back. The data is clear: empowered women transform societies," she wrote in a note about her book."
I'm just going to say it. I'm suspicious of all this.

Of what? The divorce? Her intentions? Where she will spend her money? Something else?
Nothing from her side. Only from his. I just found it weird that he's not the only top-tier rich guy who is getting divorced at the same time.

Oh I see! Remember when it happened with Bezos, only to discover he was cheating on Mckenzie :|
Yep. Exactly that.

Their youngest daughter is 18 and probably graduating from high school right now. Sounds like pretty normal timing to me.
Ah. I didn't know that part. That makes more sense.
I saw that too. Looks like they were mostly staying together for the kids and they'd been unhappy for a while.
