We already know everything there is to know about the husbands, but these proud wives will show you that they have successful careers and are an example that being married to powerful men does not overshadow them at all.
BILL AND MELINDA GATES
This power couple exudes intelligence and generosity in equal terms. Melinda has an MBA as well as degrees in computer science and economics. Together with her husband, they founded the world’s largest charitable fund, The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.
MICHAEL AND SUSAN DELL
Who said blind dates never work? It turned out wonderfully for these two who are now married and have four children. Susan is an athlete that takes part in triathlons and she’s actively involved in the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation that is committed to improving students’ performance.
DAVID AND JULIA KOCH
David Koch is the head of a corporation that excels in trade, oil processing and plastics. He has been married to Julia for more than 20 years and this beautiful woman rarely makes public appearances since she’s devoted to her charitable fund. A true example.
MARK ZUCKERBERG AND PRISCILLA CHAN
These two lovebirds met at Harvard while they were still studying. They actually met in the bathroom line at a frat party. Priscilla has always supported Mark’s projects and endeavors, though never neglecting her career as a Pediatrician and a Philanthropist.
LARRY PAGE AND LUCINDA SOUTHWORTH
Not much is known about the wife of one of the most influential men, the co-founder of Google. What we do know is that she likes to keep a low profile and avoid the press and the news, and that’s understandable!
WARREN BUFFETT AND ASTRID MENKS
Born in Letonia, Astrid’s life changed completely when she met one of the world’s most famous investors. Although they are separated by 16 years of age, the couple has been in love since the 70s and are still going strong!
BERNARD ARNAULT AND HéLèNE MERCIER
The owner of Dior, Givenchy, and Möet Chandon met his wife through a shared passion: classical music. Mercier is a professional pianist and Arnault loves classical music so the chemistry was unavoidable.
RICHARD AND JOAN BRANSON
The founder of Virgin Group courted his wife for a year before she decided to give him a chance. Now they have two children and enjoy a life of bliss and the two couldn’t look more in love.
AMANCIO ORTEGA AND FLORA PéREZ MARCOTE
Flora has an amazing sense of style, and that surely might be influenced by her husband’s job: he owns Inditex, the multinational that owns, among others, the successful Zara stores.
MICHAEL BLOOMBERG AND DIANA TAYLOR
The former mayor of New York has been in a civil partnership with Diana since the year 2000. Diana has an MBA from none other than Columbia and was once known as the “de facto” First Lady of New York.
