Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that he and his wife MacKenzie are separating after 25 years of marriage.
Bezos revealed that the two will remain friends and family. “We want to make people aware of a development in our lives. As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our lives as friends,” Bezos began.
Bezos expressed, “We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again.”
We’ve had such a great life together as a married couple, and we also see wonderful futures ahead, as parents, friends, partners in ventures and projects, and as individuals pursuing ventures and adventures. Though the labels might be different, we remain a family, and we remain cherished friends,” Bezos concluded.
