It has been pouring opinions in Pakistan from the moment Bill and Melinda Gates announced to officially part ways after 27 years of marriage.

The couple announced the news on their verified Twitter accounts yesterday. They got married in 1994 in Hawaii.

After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage, the post reads.

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 statement reads.

We continue to share a belief in that mission and will continue our work together at the foundation, but we no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation primarily focuses on the causes of education, public health and climate change.

Bill Gates is the fourth richest person in the world, according to Forbes, and his net worth is $124bn (£89bn).

He accumulated this wealth through the firm Microsoft, which he co-founded in the 1970s. It is the world’s biggest software company.

The pair met at Microsoft in the 1980s when she joined the firm as a product manager.

Bill and Melinda have asked for space and privacy after ending their marriage of 27 years, but Pakistanis have a lot to say.

It looks like some of them have way too many opinions on this matter.

There’s a little wordplay in between.

While others are just plain happy for them!
