Following the announcement that Bill and Melinda Gates are going their separate ways, Howard Feldman writes that it is sad that, after 27 years, the two have decided to divorce.
News that Bill and Melinda Gates are to get divorced after 27 years of marriage hit me hard. Not because I know them or their children, but because if any couple stood a chance of growing old and miserable together, it was them.
These are good people. They have focused on philanthropy, try valiantly to get rid of their money by givng to good causes, and will no doubt be leaving the world a better place than they have found it. That said, they are also a bit dull.
