Bill and Melinda Gates announced on Monday, May 3, that they were set to get a divorce after being together for 27 years. Since the news of their separation, the internet has been flooded with numerous theories about the couple, especially about Bill's dating life now that he's single. The couple tied the knot in January 1994 and share three children together.

Now that they have decided to go their separate ways, they shared a statement that read: “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage. Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable people to lead healthy, productive lives. We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives. We ask for space and privacy for our family as we begin to navigate this new life.”
