NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, are separating after 40 years of marriage.

According to an e-mailed statement obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, the Gores said it was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider confirmed the statement came from the Gores, but declined to comment further.

Al Gore lost the 2000 presidential election to Republican George W. Bush. He has since campaigned worldwide to draw attention to climate change, which in 2007 led to a Nobel Peace Prize and an Oscar for the documentary "An Inconvenient Truth."

Tipper Gore is known for her advocacy on mental health issues. She became interested partly because her mother suffered from depression.

The Gores have four adult children.

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, are telling friends they "grew apart" after 40 years of marriage and there was no affair involved.

According to two long-time close associates and family friends, the Gores say they are separating amicably. Their decision came after a "long process of careful consideration," said one of the associates.

They both spoke on condition of anonymity.

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."

Why is this news?

So people can make jokes about Gore and the environmental movement and relate it to their marriage.

Sad to hear about their marriage though and wish them both the best. I guess the spark just died for the two of them.

Or perhaps Al is heading to that side of the plate. That lisp has always been a little curious.

(PS, I know you're throwing that bait out there, so I'll take it just for you so you can go off:)

Re: Al and Tipper Gore to separate after 40 years

This is all Al Gore's fault ultimately.

Al Gore created the internet

from the internet sprang forth internet porn

from internet porn sprang forth the notion in Al's head that "holy crap, I'm rich and settling for her"

Thus Al Gore is responsible for the destruction of his marriage through his greatest creation ever given to man.

Maybe he found out that Tipper was leading a double life as ManBearPig.

Why is this news?

Why is this news? For the same reason that Paris Hilton gets caught on camera, with her legs apart and her beaver showing, while getting out of her car. It sells. :mrgreen:
