Al Gore And Wife Come To An Inconvenient Truth


Former vice president Al Gore and wife Tipper have decided to separate after 40 years of marriage.

The Gores were telling friends they "grew apart" after 40 years of marriage and there was no affair involved, according to two longtime close associates and family friends, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because it was a personal matter.

The associates said the Gores, over time, had carved out separate lives, with the former vice president on the road frequently. One of the associates said: "Their lives had gotten more and more separated."


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

Al, 62, and Tipper, 61, were married at the National Cathedral in Washington in 1970. They have four children.

Well this kinda sucks. Apparently winning an Oscar spells doom for a marriage whether the recipient is a HW celeb or a DC pol. So sad. I always thought they were a lovely couple.

Ya know, I always got the feeling they were great friends and always very supportive of each other. As opposed to being lovey dovey (that kiss aside). I hope they continue being friends.

Oh dear ... I continue to be amazed when couples in their 60's and older get divorced. If the relationship is solid and warm, why leave? Why do they think they are going to find to love them this late in life? Sure, Al is a powerful guy and will probably find himself a new woman. But his wife is a different story - sad but true - it's harder for women than it is for men at their age.

Sometimes people in long term marraiges divorce because they feel like they have a certain amount of time left and they don't want to waste any more of it in an unhappy situation...Maybe Tipper got sick of being a good wife

As opposed to improving it for the worse?
