What about Melinda? She is a special woman.</p> <p>It is a young woman who was admitted to Microsoft at the age of 22 and a half (1983), the only woman in the group of seven recruited at the same time and the highest degree of them. After only a short time, Melinda has become boss, managing hundreds of people. She is one of the few associates who stays at the company with Bill every night.

Bill’s mother also loves Melinda especially. </p> <p><b>The aura is too big, the house ‘the best of all time’</b></p> <p>And because Bill – Melinda rarely complains about each other, it is difficult to understand the ups and downs of a marriage. In the movie <i>Inside Bill’s Brain</i>Mrs. Melinda revealed a little bit about their hidden corner. It is not a small friction, but a systemic difference. When she married Bill, she had to get used to the “halo”, which was sometimes too much for a self-contained person like her.</p> <div class="VCSortableInPreviewMode" type="Photo" style=""> <div><img loading="lazy" src="https://cdn.tuoitre.vn/thumb_w/980/2021/5/4/bill-gates-1620105041493794576261.jpeg" id="img_8c474e40-ac95-11eb-882d-d15eabac42b1" w="1300" h="975" alt="The strange marriage of Bill and Melinda Gates: Aura and contradiction - Photo 3." title="The strange marriage of Bill and Melinda Gates: Aura and contradiction - Photo 3." rel="lightbox" photoid="8c474e40-ac95-11eb-882d-d15eabac42b1" type="photo" style="max-width:100%;" data-original="https://cdn.tuoitre.vn/2021/5/4/bill-gates-1620105041493794576261.jpeg" width="" height=""/></div> <div class="PhotoCMS_Caption"> <p data-placeholder="[nhập chú thích]">Bill Gates’ famous house in Washington – Photo: BUSINESS INSIDER</p> </div> </div> <p>Bill is so famous, often appearing on television, on big newspaper covers, always in the spotlight.

As for Melinda, she is passionate about her work, but when she comes home, she wants to leave the aura behind the door.</p> <p>“That change was very difficult for me. I am a very closed person and I reacted like: Oh, I don’t want that” – Mrs. Melinda said.</p> <p>When the couple had more babies, Bill started building the house rumored by the American media to be “the best of all time”, belonging to the couple “the best in the world”.
