Bill Gates opened up about his current working relationship with Melinda French Gates and expressed how he feels about the end of their marriage.
Bill Gates has said that his marriage to ex-wife Melinda French Gates was “great” and he would choose to marry her “all over again”.
The couple had announced their divorce back in May 2021 after nearly 30 years of marriage. It was finalised in August 2021 but the couple had announced that they would continue to run their foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, together. They have three children together – Jenner, Rory and Phoebe.
Speaking to Sunday Times on May 1, Bill Gates described the last two years as “pretty dramatic” but he also added that even with the COVID-19 pandemic and his divorce, the “weirdest part” for him has been his children leaving. Mr Gates also opened up about his current working relationship with his ex-wife and expressed how he feels about the end of their marriage.
He stated that every marriage “goes through a transition” after children grow up and leave the family home. For him, the transition was “called divorce,” he said. However, the business magnet added that in spite of its ending, from his point of view he had a “great marriage”.
“I wouldn’t have changed it. You know, I wouldn’t choose to marry someone else,” the Microsoft founder told Sunday Times.
