Bill Gates and Melinda Gates have been together for over 20 years. The two met via Microsoft, which is also how they amassed their enormous fortune. In 1987, Melinda was hired as a product manager for the company, and she met Bill just three weeks after getting hired when she traveled to New York. Bill Gates’ age was just 32 at the time, and Melinda was 23.

After their first meeting, Bill asked Melinda to go out dancing — but Melinda declined. They reconnected several months later, though. While Melinda declined Bill’s advances once again, they eventually went on a date. And it seems the rest is history. Bill had to make sacrifices in order to make his relationship with Melinda work and run Microsoft, but he decided it was worth it. The two married in 1994.
