Bill Gates Went On Annual Getaways With Ex While Married To Melinda

Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates went on yearly holidays with ex-girlfriend Ann Winblad for years after he was married to his wife Melinda. 

Gates and his wife announced that they were calling it quits on their 27-year marriage on Twitter Monday, writing that “After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage.” 

After the revelation that their $130 billion marriage was over, a 1997 profile resurfaced, where Gates admitted to going on getaways with Winblad despite marrying Melinda in 1994.  

Gates began dating venture capitalist Winblad in 1984 after they met at a computer conference.  Though they were in separate cities, they went on “virtual dates” by going to the same movie at different theaters and discussing it on their cell phones. They broke up in 1987, because Gates wasn’t ready for marriage, but remained close enough to go off for long weekends at her North Carolina beach cottage together every spring.  

“We can play putt-putt while discussing biotechnology,” Gates said. “We share our thoughts about the world and ourselves,” Winblad remarked about their vacations. “And we marvel about how, as two young overachievers, we began a great adventure on the fringes of a little-known industry and it landed us at the center of an amazing universe.” 

They were so close Gates even asked for Winblad’s approval before marrying Melinda, which she gave. “I said she’d be a good match for him because she had intellectual stamina.”

Winblad married actor Kevin Kline’s brother Alex, an investigator, in 2015.

A Rat is always a Rat, no matter how much money he has & how “philanthropic” he is.
works do not save the man, the soul.

Mark Brinkley best be careful who you call a rat. Best you 1st look in the mirror and see that big rat looking directly back at yourself. His soul is not yours to judge no more that it was for the people of Israel to judge King David
