After nearly three decades of married life Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates finalized their divorce in August 2021. The couple had tied the knot in 1994 after a long dating phase of 7 years and announced their divorce in May 2021.

He admitted about being unsure about whether he has been able to come in terms with his divorce yet but he feels lucky seeing his wife and himself working together on the professional front and that they are still friends. On the impact o divorce on personal life, Bill Gates said that both he and his wife are healing from it.
