Melinda Gates Reveals The Secret Of Their Marriage

Melinda Gates has opened up about her 25-year marriage to her husband, Bill, revealing that one of the secrets to everlasting love with a tech titan is patience.

The 54-year-old philanthropist, who is promoting her new book, The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World, couldn't help but laugh when she was congratulated on their recent milestone anniversary during her interview with The Sunday Times.

'I think I laugh because, I mean, it’s funny, we’ve just gotten to a point in life where Bill and I can both laugh about more things,' she explained. 'And, believe me, I can remember some days that were so incredibly hard in our marriage where you thought, "Can I do this?"'She recalled being furious with her husband years ago because he was reading a book about Winston Churchill instead of helping her pack up the car and get their children ready.


Although Melinda credited patience with helping her stay married to a work-obsessed entrepreneur, she said he is actually pretty easy to live with most of the time.

'He needs a little training, and he’d tell you that too,' she added, noting that she was the one who helped him find a work-life balance.

'When he was having trouble making the decision about getting married, he was incredibly clear that it was not about me, it was about "Can I get the balance right between work and family life?"' she explained.

In her book, Melinda gives readers a rare glimpse into her personal life, recalling how she met the man who would one day become her husband when she started her job at Microsoft.  Interesting book, it must be!

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
