Al Gore, Wife Tipper to Divorce

by at . Comments

In sad and unexpected news from the political world, former Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper Gore are calling it quits after four decades together.

The environmental advocate and his spouse have announced, via an e-mail to friends, that they are separating. Their 40th anniversary was just last month.

"We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate," stated the e-mail, first obtained by Politico.com.

"This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

The Gores' brief, joint statement concluded: "We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further."

Married since May 1970, Al and Tipper Gore are splitting up.

Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider confirmed the statement came from the Gores, The Associated Press reports, but declined to elaborate on the matter.

Al Gore became the highest-profile advocate for environmental and climate change issues since losing the 2000 Presidential election by a razor-thin margin.

Tipper Gore is known for advocacy on mental health issues, and for an active role in the Parents Music Resource Center during her husband's time in office.

Al, 61, and Tipper, 60, have four grown children: Karenna, Kristin, Sarah and Al Gore III. We wish the spouses and their kids the best in this tough time.

Al Gore is a complete loon.
He and the Tipster have not been seen together for years.
One or both of them have developed their own private life.
It is a sad commentary on how our society has gone directly
downhill for the past forty years.
Just look around folks, people need to awaken and live with
some semblance of dignity.
I would like to say it is because she is a typical American girl,
but she may not be the culprit here. He is a loon.

Everyone have the right to separate for whatever reason it may be, if they can't stay together any longer. So many couple stays together for their children sake. Even if they themselves aren’t happy, it may be a mistake or the best thing they could ever happen to them. However, the main thing that counts if they are happy with their decision. And if is a big mistake it is still their business, even if they are public political figure, they are still human being. Whatever, happen I wish them the best if they change their minds or not.

Ok they are getting a divorce, thank you for telling me. It's their business and I really do not care.

Simply put, he separated to screw other females, and life to him isn't very happy when he finds happy hunting everywhere. What is said, is that he'll probably end up an old goat like men that want too much. Maybe he needs to wear glasses and see what he looks like now! Can't speak any kind words about this, dam it!
