Bill revealed the limits towards the exposure of technology to his children. Bill and his wife Melinda declared that their children would get their cell phone only after they reach 13. Rory, who got his first cell phone in 2005, had to give his password of social media to his father. He along with his siblings was also given some amount of pocket money for doing household chores.
Rory's elder sister Jennifer, who graduated from Stanford University is getting a $16 million Westchester horse farm as a college graduation gift. She is also planning to move to New York and continue her studies at New York University.
Jennifer has a fascinating history when it comes to her education. While her father Bill was still the CEO of Microsoft, he managed his time to drop his daughters to their school. Her mother Melinda talked with Business Insider in April 2019 and said that she and Bill split their household responsibilities. The Microsoft CEO used to drive his daughter Jennifer to the kindergarten in the morning. Melinda was even surprised by her husband's work as she knows that Bill was extremely busy with his work at Microsoft.
Due to the supporting nature, Bill and Melinda are relishing their happily married life since 1994. They met in 1987 at Microsoft when Melinda joined as a product manager. Initially, when Bill asked her for a date, she rejected citing he was not spontaneous enough, but later agreed to a date with him. Despite their busy time, Rory's parents have become a strong pillar of support to each other.
On the other side, Melinda is also proud of Rory as she raised a feminist son. Back in 2015, she took him on a trip to East Africa in Malawi. When the mother-and-son were visiting their foundation, they met a group of men who spoke about the traditions of household chores and making big decisions together with their wife. Melinda was impressed by their chatters, but Rory disagreed with their views. He had quite optimistic views regarding the gender norms, which fascinated his mother.
Rory's mother Melinda affirmed in April 2019 that all of her kids are fully vaccinated. The wife of the multi-billionaire took her Instagram and said to her followers to listen to the science about how to be protected from vaccination towards the vulnerability to the disease and the action to protect the children.
Taking about his romantic life, Rory, who makes rare appearances among the public, is reportedly not dating any lady. While he is focusing on growing his career, he is not linked romantically and is neither rumored to have a girlfriend. Rory currently lives in Xanadu 2.0 mansion in Medina, Washington along with his family.
