A list of pros and cons of marriage to help Bill Gates make his decision
In a documentary released as a three-part miniseries on Netflix, titled Inside the Brain of Bill Gates, Bill and Melinda Gates reconsidered their marriage. In particular, Melinda recounted that she caught Bill Gates in his bedroom making a list of the pros and cons of marrying her. A list that should allow him to “make his decision”. Bill Gates was then justified by declaring: “I took the idea of marriage very seriously”. According to the young woman, her companion “wanted to get married, but did not know if he could really engage in it and while managing Microsoft”. And the billionaire added that at the time, the couple had only “two possibilities: either we were going to separate, or we were going to get married”.
It seems that Bill Gates has found more good reasons to put the ring on Melinda’s finger since the couple ended up saying yes on December 31, 1994 on the island of Lanai, Hawaii. A union that will see the birth of three children: Jennifer, Rory and Phoebe.But after sharing 27 years of life together, Bill and Melinda Gates will therefore divorce. The couple’s problems would not date from yesterday. Because according to the Wall Street Journal, Melinda Gates would have come into contact with lawyers specializing in divorce in October 2019.
