Bill Gates Officially Divorced, Harvard Study Results: Money Cannot Buy Love

Windowofworld.com – Through his Twitter account, Bill Gates said that he and his wife, Melinda Gates, decided to divorce after 27 years of marriage.

In the statement, he said that they no longer believed that the two could grow together as a couple.

“… we no longer believe that we can grow together as a couple in the next phase of our lives.”

The couple married on January 1, 1994 and have three children.

According to Forbes, Bill Gates is the fourth richest person in the world after Jeff Bezos, Bernard Arnault and his family, and Elon Musk.

According to research, pressure has a big role to play

While certainly not the reason Bill and Melinda divorced, a study published by the University at Buffalo (UB) and Harvard Business School said that those who are financially successful often feel lonely in their daily lives.

According to Lora Park, a psychology professor at UB, people who base their self-esteem on financial success feel depressed. “When people base their self-esteem on financial success, they experience feelings of stress and a lack of autonomy, which is associated with negative social outcomes.”

“Feeling that the pressure to achieve financial goals means we put ourselves to work at the expense of time with those we love, and it is the lack of time spent with those close to us that is associated with feelings of loneliness and disconnection,” explains Deborah Ward. , UB postgraduate students and additional teaching staff in UB’s psychology department.

The findings, which emphasize the role of social networks and personal relationships in maintaining good mental health, were published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.

The study involved more than 2,500 participants across five different studies that looked for relationships between the financial contingencies of self-esteem and key variables, such as time spent with other people, loneliness, and social disconnection.

The study also included a diary study that followed participants over a two-week period to assess how they felt in that time.

“We saw a consistent relationship between valuing money in terms of who you are and experiencing negative social outcomes in previous work, so this led us to ask why this association exists,” explains Ward.

“We see this finding as further evidence that people who base their self-esteem on money tend to feel pressure to achieve financial success, which is related to the quality of their relationships with other people.”

Even though he doesn’t have the final answer, Ward emphasizes that pressure has a big role to play.
