Will she receive half his fortune once their divorce is final? By the looks of it, Jeff and MacKenzie were devoutly locked into their relationship. She attended Princeton University.

The pair share four children together and first met at the investment management firm D.E. Shaw in 1993 in New York City. Within 6 months, they were married and off to Seattle where Jeff would open the first Amazon storefront, a bookstore if you recall? He launched Amazon in 1994, originally selling only books, before transforming the company into one of the world's preeminent online retailers.

VideoSteven Levy, Wired editor-at-large, discusses Jeff Bezos' plans to fly people to space starting in 2019. Otherwise, it might fluctuate.

The couple Wednesday in 1993 - just months after meeting at the hedge fund D.E. Shaw & Co., where MacKenzie (née Tuttle) was a research associate.

Morrison, 87, told Vogue MacKenzie was "one of the best students I've ever had in my creative writing classes... really one of the best".

In an image of text attached to the tweet, Jeff Bezos said the decision came after a "long period of loving exploration and a trial separation".

"I think they'll be best friends", Stanger shared. Buzz is that this divorce, therefore, will be a very costly affair. There wasn't any reason to expect discord.

So what's the difference between a prenuptial agreement (commonly known as a "prenup") and a postnuptial agreement ("postnup")?

The world's richest couple, Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos, is getting a divorce.

MacKenzie is an author of multiple novels, including Traps and The Testing of Luther Albright.

Speaking at an event in Berlin last April, Ms Bezos said her support was instrumental when he founded Amazon. The couple filed for divorce in 2012 after 26 years of marriage, and their trial two years later ended with Hamm, the chairman and CEO of Continental Resources Inc., being ordered to pay her US$972 million of his then-estimated US$16.1 billion fortune.

Bezos also owns the Washington Post newspaper, while the company acquired the Whole Foods supermarket previous year.

The Twitter statement from the couple suggests they will continue to work together on the charity. The couple managed to start a family in between all those busy days.
