Very sad. Lots of money does not ensure happiness.

A perfect martini should be made by filling a glass with gin, then waving it in the general direction of Italy.

Never argue with an idiot......they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

They are not the first they won't be the last so is life, as long as the divorce makes them both happy and it is what they want then good luck to the pair of them in their future endeavours.

If divorce is unavoidable, then aim for an amicable one, which seems to be the situation here.
From what i've read, they appear to be two very nice people. Good luck to both.

You can love someone,but not be in love with someone, if both these people feel divorce is the answer and everything can be done respectfully, go for it.

They have both done so many good things for our state and the world. Each has had some pet projects and together the Foundation. I hope what is missing in their marriage if fulfilled in a divorce. Good luck to both.
Its really too bad the last five years the abuse from the right they have had to endure. Everything they have done for the health of the poor and the world is amazing.

It's always sad when a marriage ends however I'm sure that they will divorce amicably for the sake of their children even though they are adults and I hope that they continue with their projects.

I suspect with the Gates involvement in their many business' / projects, they had/ taken little time for each other. and since life is ever evolving, they grew apart.They are both kind and intelligent people, they mutually came to agreement on their splitting assets. The next phase of their life will prove just as successful as the previous.

He needs to uninstall his current version of The Wife and upgrade to the latest version.
