In a new interview, the 66-year-old newly-single mogul shares that he can’t imagine marrying someone else than Melinda French Gates as he says, ‘I wouldn’t choose to marry someone else.’
AceShowbiz -Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates’ marriage may end with divorce, but the tech mogul has no regrets regarding the matter. The Microsoft founder claims in a new interview that he “would marry Melinda all over again.”
“Every marriage as the kids leave the house will go through a transition. Mine sadly went through this transition called divorce,” Bill told London’s Sunday Times in an interview published on Sunday, May 1. “But from my point of view it was a great marriage. I wouldn’t have changed it. You know, I wouldn’t choose to marry someone else.”
The newly-single mogul went on to say, “Yes. I’m talking about would I marry Melinda all over again.” He also urged people not to be afraid of marriage as stating, “In terms of my future, I don’t have any plans, but I highly recommend marriage.”
Bill and Melinda announced their split in May 2021 and their divorce petition didn’t include a signed prenuptial agreement. “We spent some time coming up with a fair settlement that we both signed,” he explained. “But neither of us was facing any real reduction in our consumption. It was more about, OK, I’ll have x billion to give away, you’ll have y billion to give away. It was about the causes.”
The Seattle native added, “We’re very lucky people. I feel sorry for when people have super limited resources under any circumstance. And that’s not our situation. We can be reasonably generous to the kids, but the vast majority of the money will go to philanthropy.”
In the interview, Bill admitted that his 66,000-square-foot Seattle home suddenly “feels too big most of the time” amid his divorce and his youngest daughter going to college. He allegedly plans to host more dinners with experts he wants to hear from. He also found time to write a new book, “How to Prevent the Next Pandemic”, which is set to out on Tuesday, May 3.
The two got married in Lanai, Hawaii, in January 1994 after dating for 7 years. The former couple shares three children, daughter Jennifer, 26, son Rory, 22, and daughter Phoebe, 19.
