Quote: “They may want to change its name to reflect that they are no longer a couple,” top family law attorney Christopher C. Melcher said of a big possible change that they might make. And, because of their divorce, Melcher thinks that Bill and Melinda may want to forge different roles in the Gates foundation moving forward. “Because they were not able to continue as marital partners, it remains to be seen if they can continue leading their foundation,” he explained, adding that “they may find it easier to have separate roles or endeavors within the foundation.”
