Philanthropic power couple Bill and Melinda Gates announced Monday they are getting divorced.

“Over the last 27 years we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives,” the couple wrote on Twitter. “We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together art the foundations, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.”

The founders of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation asked for privacy “as we begin to navigate this new life.”
