英语热词 | 世界首富亚马逊CEO与妻子离婚,附声明全文

杰夫·贝佐斯在推特声明中称,经过长期爱情探索和暂时分居( trial separation),他们决定离婚并在今后以朋友的身份相处。在声明中,他们还感人地说到非常幸运能遇到彼此,并对这段婚姻中的点点滴滴深表感激,即使在25年前便预知这场分离,他们仍然会选择在一起。

声明没有回答所有离婚案中最普遍的症结(sticking point):婚姻中积累的资产(assets amassed during the marriage)将如何分割?毕竟这很有可能成为史上涉及夫妻共同财产(communal estate)最大的离婚案。

杰夫·贝佐斯的妻子麦肯齐·贝佐斯现在是一名小说家。她从普林斯顿大学毕业后,在投资管理公司D.E.Shaw担任研究助理,杰夫·贝佐斯当时是该公司的副总裁之一,二人相识不到一年便选择结婚。1994年,这对夫妇辞掉了工作,前往西雅图创建亚马逊。

根据亚马逊内部流传的故事(in Amazon lore),亚马逊的部分商业计划就是夫妇俩在开车从纽约到西雅图的路途中写出来的。麦肯齐·贝索斯也是亚马逊的首个员工,他们共有四个子女。

麦肯齐·贝索斯曾在接受vogue采访时表示她们夫妇俩截然不同的性格(contrasting personalities)对于两个人来说是一种互补。杰夫·贝佐斯非常擅长社交,喜欢结交朋友,但对麦肯齐·贝索斯而言,鸡尾酒会特别伤脑筋(nerve-racking)。

杰夫·贝佐斯与麦肯齐·贝索斯离婚声明全文

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 shared lives as friends. 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.

Jeff & MacKenzie
