One of the world's most powerful couple, Bill and Melinda Gates, sent shockwaves all over the world after announcing they were getting a divorce.
The two have been married for 27 years and raised three children together, two girls and a boy, and it was not clear what was the main reason leading to their split.
The two immediately became the biggest trending topic globally, with social media users reacting to their split.
While lack of financial stability is why couples quit a relationship, this was the total opposite considering both are billionaires in their own right.
Some were quick to note that if Bill was still unable to keep his wife with all his riches, then money was not everything in a marriage.
Some wondered what the impact that a divorce between two individuals could have on the thousands of initiatives funded by the two worldwide.
For some netizens, it was an opportunity to send their personal bios as they hilariously urged Bill and Melinda to consider them as their next partners.
Here are more reactions:
Bill and Melinda's divorce could have the biggest settlement ever witnessed in the world.
As earlier reported, the two have been together for 27 years but said they no longer believe that they can grow together as a couple.
In a joint statement shared on their personal social media account, the former couple noted their decision was made after "a great deal of thought" and putting a lot of work into their relationship.
They promised to continue working together in the foundation but felt they would not work as a couple.
Bill and Melinda noted the reason was they "no longer believe we can grow together as a couple" in the next phase of their lives.
The two asked for space and privacy as they begin to navigate their new life.
