Bill and Melinda Gates have now officially announced that they will be divorcing after 27 years of marriage.

The announcement may end up having a significant impact on Gates’ fortune.

As CNBC reports:

Bill Gates, co-founder and former CEO of Microsoft, said in a tweet on Monday that he and his wife, Melinda Gates, will be splitting up after 27 years.

Financial details are not yet clear. Bill Gates owns 1.37% of Microsoft’s outstanding shares, which are worth more than $26 billion.

Last year Bill Gates stepped down from Microsoft’s board as the coronavirus became a force around the world. He began spending more time on the nonprofit Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation alongside Melinda Gates. The two are co-chairs and trustees of the foundation, which launched in 2000.

Bill and Melinda Gates met at Microsoft. She had been a marketing manager at the software company.

You’re not your. You’re is a contraction of the two words you are. Your is a possessive pronoun like, that’s yours; mine and yours; is that your name?
