Melinda French Gates is one of USA TODAY’s Women of the Year, a recognition of women across the country who have made a significant impact.So what did she do? She confirmed that she was the cause of the Bill Gates divorce.
I would say probably, though, for sure, my lowest moment in life was when I finally reached the decision that I knew I needed to leave my marriage. That wasn't something I ever thought would happen to me. It certainly wasn't what I thought on the day I got married, but I realized for myself, I needed to make a healthier choice, and that was just a very, very sad day.Was she mistreated somehow? Nope. Another interview:
During the interview, Melinda was asked about the affair Bill had with a staffer 20 years ago, which a spokesperson for the Microsoft co-founder confirmed last May.She also attended the marriage of their daughter to an Egyptian equestrian.
"I certainly believe in forgiveness, so I thought we had worked through some of that," said the author and women's advocate, 57.
"It wasn't one moment or one specific thing that happened. There just came a point in time where there was enough there that I realized it just wasn't healthy, and I couldn't trust what we had," she added.
It is hard to see what she could be complaining about. She seemed to have everything that a woman would want. I am not trying to second-guess her. I am just trying to understand human nature.
