“It’s Unbelievably Painful in So Many Ways,” Melinda Gates Says of Her Divorce from Ex-husband Bill
“It’s Unbelievably Painful, in Innumerable Ways,” Melinda French Gates Said About Her Divorce From Ex-Husband Bill The divorce between Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates was finalized in August of the previous year. After nearly 30 years of marriage, Melinda French Gates and Bill Gates made the announcement in May 2021 that they were divorcing one other.
The divorce was finalized in August of 2021, but the couple declared that they will continue to work together to manage their organization, which is called the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Now, in an interview with Fortune Magazine, Melinda has discussed her “unbelievably traumatic” divorce from her ex-husband Bill. Melinda and Bill were married for 12 years.
French Gates, who is 58 years old, gave an interview to Fortune magazine in which she stated, “I had some reasons I just couldn’t stay in that marriage any longer.” “But the strange thing about COVID is that it allowed me to carry out my duties in complete secrecy,” the user said. She went on to say, “It’s terribly awful, in countless different ways, but I had the privacy to get through it.”
The former couple tied the knot in 1994 and share parental responsibilities for their three children, Jennifer, Rory, and Phoebe. The philanthropist shared their secret, saying, “I maintained working with the person I was moving away from, and I wanted to show up and be my best self every single day.” She continued by saying, “So even though I might be crying at nine in the morning and then have to be on a video conference with the person I’m leaving at ten in the morning, I have to show there and be my best.”
She stated that the experience reminded her that the foundation “called me to be my best” and that it taught her that being a leader taught her that she could do it. In a previous interview with the Sunday Times, Bill Gates described the most recent two years as “quite dramatic.”
However, he also stated that despite the COVID-19 epidemic and the dissolution of his marriage, the “weirdest thing” for him has been the departure of his children. The founder of Microsoft said this as he was discussing his former spouse: “I wouldn’t have done anything differently. You should know that if I had a choice, I wouldn’t marry anybody else.”
