[@585989,JustcallmeNameless] 馃槀They've been together for 30 years... They've put up with each other's crap they long. They may as well continue.

He's younger than I am, and people older than I have gotten divorced.
TheArbitrator31-35, M
[@475592,DragonFruit] That's disheartening.

[@1183735,TheArbitrator] Perhaps....but having a cutoff age for divorcing would actually be more disheartening.

It just goes to show you can have all the dollars, all the stuff it buys, be successful at important work you really want to do, and still not get what you thought you wanted.馃様
Very sad, as always.

[@517317,EmilyEdith] You're absolutely right. Many would think any couple who has those types of funds would be incredibly Happy. I can't imagine what the issue is.

They're not old lol
TheArbitrator31-35, M
[@868864,HannahSky] Why would two sensible & extremely wealthy people divorce after so many years of marriage? There has to be something behind this.

[@1183735,TheArbitrator] idk they said their relationship isn't growing.

No one's too old to get a divorce.

However, I'm sorry to learn this, because I admire them both and am sorry they couldn't manage to stay together. I don't judge people who make this decision -- it happened in my own family to two long-married couples -- but I always feel saddened. I do think the Gateses probably tried their best and sought top-flight counseling. I'm sure they didn't make this decision at all lightly, and it seems they will continue to work together on their philanthropic projects.
Love to know what the prenup says, for the sake of context
