Couple of theories floatn' online

He transferred millions of $ to ep5te1n at the break of the scandal. <is he part of some club?>

More time spent with wife due to pandemic sheltering.

Strained relationship over time commitments of late.

Children are grown up, parents developing psychological distance over time.

Just like Bezos got one, and I will 100% guarantee Musk will in the future as well. They just can't wait long enough for their golden tickets to die.

My idol is breaking up with his lassie...
Were you more inspired by his ripping off his 'friend' at the beginning, his incompetence at making a stable OS even with all the resources in the world or his post Microsoft experimenting on poor countries with GM crops in the name of charity?  As an idol he's only better than a drug lord because he made more money.

Stop looking at a marriage as only being successful if someone dies, it's a pretty sh*tty metric.

They've been together 27(?) years, I'd say they had a pretty good run, most people don't keep friends that long.

It's already been 27 years, so why a divorce? Why not just live separately? I wonder why need to sensationalize it in public unless there are obvious economic gains, maybe?

Lets say Bill gets a girlfriend,  that will impact the later settlement.

At his age?!
It's more likely that Melinda has a boyfriend.
