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.

They got engaged after three months of dating and married shortly after, in 1993.

Meanwhile, one year later he founded Amazon, which began as an online book retailer.
