We are very sorry to hear that Bill and Melinda Gates have decided to divorce after 27 years of marriage.
It is always sad to hear that a marriage has broken down and especially so when it has been such a long one.
Bill Gates is apparently the fourth richest man in the world with a net worth of approximately $130 billion. Such wealth includes a fleet of fast cars, a private jet and several luxury properties across the USA. The family home alone being worth approximately $125 million.
Whist most separating couples do not have anywhere near the assets that Bill and Melinda have, upon divorce there are usually financial matters to be resolved between them, including what will happen to the family home and how savings and pensions might be divided.
