Bill and Melinda Gates have announced they are to divorce after 27 years of marriage, saying they “no longer believe we can grow together as a couple”.
The Microsoft co-founder turned philanthropist and his wife have built up a combined $124bn fortune, making them among the top five richest couples in the world.
“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” the pair said in a joint statement posted on Twitter.
So let's do the math, shall we? 27 years into 124 billion comes to what, 4.6 billion a year??? What do you think the judge is gonna give her for staying with him for that long?"
