Default Those were some expensive weekends for Bill Gates

https://www.foxbusiness.com/business...age-to-melinda

simple math:

reports say Bill is worth about $146,000,000,000

let's say Melinda takes half to have her go away quietly.

that's $73,000,000,000 to her account.

but it took her 27 years to get to today, so that averages out to about $2,703,703,703 per year, or about $7,407,407 per day. or about $308,642 per hour, every day, 24 hours a day.

I think they'll both be fine financially, but they are still nuts.

"hey dear, i'd really like to marry you, but is it ok to keep my side honey on speed dial, and go spend a weekend with her each year or so?" "yeah?" "sweet!"

At this point their marriage is probably just a business arrangement. Maybe it always was...

^^^ This.

I believe this divorce is nothing more than a strategy to shield and protect assets. Split them and it's harder to "git" them.

I'm guessing that if he had a relationship on the side, so did she...probably Polyamorous.

In a business sense, she did well.
