In an official statement released by the couple via their Twitter account, “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage.
We have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives.
We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.”
Bill and Melinda began dating in 1987 after meeting at a New York trade show and got married 7 years later on January 1, 1994, in Hawaii.
