  • From muddy streets in South Africa’s townships to cocktail parties at Davos – Bill and Melinda Gates came as a pair.
  • Together, they built a charitable empire through Bill’s technology company Microsoft and the massive non-profit they co-founded and co-chair, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
  • And when it came time to announce Monday the end of their 27-year marriage, they did that as a pair too in a joint statement posted to their respective Twitter accounts at exactly the same moment.
