Jeff Bezos is the richest man in history with a jaw-dropping fortune of over $100 billion. The Amazon founder and CEO has had an inspiring career, but even more impressive is his strong marriage to MacKenzie Bezos. MacKenzie has been with him through it all, and was by his side when he founded Amazon and built it into the powerhouse company it is today.
The novelist met her future husband when she interviewed with him at a New York hedge fund. Within three months of their first date, they were engaged. They married in 1993 and moved to Seattle the following year after Jeff had the idea for the company that would eventually become Amazon. “I have no business sense whatsoever, but I saw how excited he was,” MacKenzie told Vogue about the decision to uproot their lives.
Decades later, the couple is still happily married and have four kids together. The business mogul is as supportive of his wife’s career as she is of his. “Jeff is my best reader,” she said, adding that he will happily clear his schedule to read her manuscripts and give her notes.
