The news of the impending divorce of Microsoft founder, Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates rocked the airwaves on Monday.
The couple who jointly run the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, announced the end of their 27-year-old marriage in a joint statement via Bill’s Twitter account.
Court documents obtained by TMZ reveal that the couple do not have a prenuptial agreement in place and the only written agreement that they have related to the divorce is the separation agreement. Melinda is however not seeking spousal support.
The court documents also showed that Melinda filed for divorce citing that the marriage was “irretrievably broken” and asked the judge to rule that their marriage officially ended “as of the date in the separation contract,” although the date of their separation was not mentioned,
