Al Gore and Tipper Announce Separation

Al Gore and Wife Tipper to Split After 40 Years

Al and Tipper Gore have announced their separation after 40 years of marriage. The couple, who met at a high school dance, wrote in an email:

This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration. We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further.

This comes as a big surprise to those of us who recall the couple's many public displays of affection over the years. We wish them and their four children the best.

This is saddening. However, on another level, I trust they made the decision that was right and good for them.

This makes me so very sad. I thought they were a stable couple, totally in love. What happened?

Spacekatagel, I don't think that public life had anything to do with it. It is very sad that after 40 years they parted their separate ways, that is a lifetime. It is true what my mom says: Love is never for sure. You really don't know.

I'm betting that Al is going to come screaming out of the closet in a cloud of glitter and unicorns. ;)
