Philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates have a lot on their plates, but that doesn’t stop them from doing the dishes together every night.

In a recent interview with Business Insider, Melinda revealed one of the keys to her 25-year marriage to the Microsoft co-founder: sharing household responsibilities.

According to Melinda, it all started when she realized she was always in the kitchen 15 minutes after Bill and their three kids had gone upstairs, leaving her to finish cleaning up alone.

Bill and Melinda Gates have said that they intend to leave their three children million each as their inheritance. With only million kept in the family, they appear to be on a course to give away about 99.96 percent of their wealth.[112] On August 25, 2018, Gates distributed 0,000 through his

Melinda Gates said she and Bill Gates shared the same values. Relationship experts say couples who have similar values are the most successful. She added: "I think of it all the time, because fundamentally we're looking in the same direction." Relationship experts would agree with Melinda 's

“So one night we stood up after dinner and people in the family started to melt away, like, off they go upstairs. So hand on my hips, I’m, like, ‘Nobody leaves the kitchen until I leave the kitchen!’” she said. “What happens is that last 15 minutes gets divvied up really fast. And then five minutes later we all go upstairs. So I think we just have to sometimes name these extra invisible things that people don’t even see that we do as women.”

In her new book, “The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World,” Melinda writes about how so much of the “unpaid” household labor — like cooking, keeping track of the family calendar, folding laundry, organizing childcare, scheduling dentist appointments — often falls on women’s shoulders. Over the course of a lifetime, she said, women spend seven more years doing this type of household work than men do. If their male partners stepped up more, just think about what women could accomplish with the extra time.

How a Marriage Survives the Death of a Child

How a Marriage Survives the Death of a Child “If you were to ask me why this destroys some marriages, I would probably say that some marriages are ripe for being destroyed.”

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), previously branded as the 'William H. Gates Foundation', is a private foundation founded by Bill and Melinda Gates . Based in Seattle, Washington, it was launched in 2000 and is reported to be the largest private foundation in the world

Melinda and Bill Gates reveal the common-sense secret to successful relationships. To overcome such imbalances, which are only amplified by Bill ’s global fame as founder of Microsoft, he and Melinda ground their personal and professional relationship in two unsexy, yet deeply practical tenants.

“I don’t know about you, but I think you and I could probably go and get a couple of graduate degrees and a Ph.D. in seven years,” Melinda told Business Insider. “Some of that’s work you want to do. It’s tender; it’s lovely. But some of it is also the mundane of doing laundry and the dishes and packing lunch boxes.”

Indeed, research seems to back up the positive effect a more equal division of household labor can have on a relationship. A 2016 Pew Research Center study found that 56% of married respondents believed sharing household chores was “very important” to a happy union.

The Gates met in 1987 when Melinda joined Microsoft as a product manager. They married in Hawaii in 1994 and now have three children. As co-chairs of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, they’ve dedicated their lives to reducing poverty and improving education and health care.

In the foundation’s 2018 annual letter, Melinda Gates opened up about finding more equal footing in their philanthropy work and in their marriage.

Couple married for 82 years shares simple secret to lasting marriage bliss

Couple married for 82 years shares simple secret to lasting marriage bliss The secret to a long marriage? “Just be nice to each other.” That’s the advice from a North Carolina couple who have been married for 82 years. D.W. Williams, 103, and Willie Williams, 100, recently celebrated their birthdays — which fall only seven days apart. Family and friends gathered to reflect on a lifetime of memories. The couple spoke about living through the century: they experienced both world wars, the Great Depression and the civil rights movement. Through all their years, the Williams have kept it simple.

Billionaires Bill and Melinda Gates have a very particular secret to keeping their marriage working, and it 's a lot simpler than you might think . It makes you look back on the chore chart you had as a child and think maybe your parents were onto something, right?

“When Bill first came over to the foundation from Microsoft, he was used to being in charge. I’d stayed home with our kids, so I was restarting my career,” she wrote. “There were times I felt that disparity — in meetings when I was reticent and he was voluble, or when the person we were meeting with looked toward Bill and not me. It’s always been important to us that we are equal partners in our foundation’s work. We’ve learned over time to give each other feedback at home about times in the office when we didn’t meet that goal.”

She added: “As I’ve thought more deeply about equality for women around the world, I’ve been proud that Bill and I have achieved it in our life together.”
