After 27 years of Marriage, Microsoft Founder and former CEO, Bill Gates and wife, Melinda, are ending their marriage.

Bill announced the decision today on his Twitter account, that after "a great deal of thought and work" the two will be ending their longtime marriage.

Not only were the two married, they founded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Their foundation has worked for years to help provide food and health services to millions.

Bill Gates was the richest man in the world for quite a few years, but in recent years was dethroned of that title by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. Bill is now 3rd on the list after Bezos, and Tesla Founder, Elon Musk, with an estimated net worth of $131 Billion.
