I can't help but to think this is a huge distraction for something bigger that's coming🤔
Bill could save himself a ton of money by giving Melinda the Moderna vaccine.
Melinda got tired of her husband just focusing on how to depopulate the planet.

They want to control the world but they can't even control their own homes
They probably lived separate lives for the last decade!

Why can't people stay married? My Gosh, they've been together all of these years. It would seem like they could finish the finish line. Too many other priorities & not the relationship is what I expect.

Bill - "No Sweetie we need to complete world domination before we can go outside and then we have to wait until after everyone dies plus 30 more days to make sure the virus we let out dies. we are the only ones left plus those rotten old elite's. The rest of the elites didn't listen and also caught the virus"

They waited until their kids are adults before they split like many responsible couples.
They must be sleeping in different beds in different rooms for years like many rich couples !

You see Pandemic has taken the toll even on richest, they don't want to get lockdown with same person and see them again. Strange how Pandemic has revealed true nature of some people and nations in crisis. I am from India and we as a nation will develop our own API for vaccine it doesn't matter if Natural Allies helps us or not.

I think she will find out it is now too late to divorce/distance herself from this madness. Nuremburg 2.0 will happen, and they both will stand trial for crimes against humanity. If that's what you want to call it.

In reality almost every married couple these days is at min contemplating divorce... They may have also been inspired by Jeff Bezos.Lastly, their youngest offspring recently turned 18 so no more child support is required by US law. Many people wait until there kids are 18 to file. Divorce is on the rise globally.
