Al and Tipper Gore: 40 Years Of Marriage, Sadly, Is Long Enough

I was shocked to learn that former Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper Gore, after 40 years of marriage, are going to separate. According to The Los Angeles Times, Politico broke the story earlier today.
In an ' Email from Al and Tipper Gore,' the couple said: 'We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate'.
'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.'

The e-mail was obtained by POLITICO and confirmed by Kalee Kreider of the office of Al and Tipper Gore. Kreider said there would be no further comment.

 I am not an Al Gore fan. I think Al Gore contributes more to global warming than he prevents. I don't think Al Gore should have won the Nobel Peace Prize. But Tipper Gore seems to me to be a decent person, and a good wife.

I was under the impression that Al and Tipper Gore had an excellent marriage, and I'm sure many people thought likewise. I am saddened by the news that Al Gore and Tipper Gore are separating. Being married for 40 years is an accomplishment in this day and age when divorce is rampant. I wish Al and Tipper Gore the best of luck.
