The Guardian: When rich people divorce: what does the future hold for Bill and Melinda Gates?

One of said experts, high-profile divorce attorney Nancy Chemtob, inferred that the Gates have likely agreed upon a “50-50 case” in terms of splitting up assets due to their amount of money and length of their marriage.
