Al Gore Split

Posted in Celebrity Divorce tagged at 3:17 pm by demetriagraves

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper are separating, this news comes just weeks after their 40th wedding anniversary. From outside appearances, it was a solid marriage and genuine partnership, that is now dissolving. They announced the split in an email to friends recently: “This is a very 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.

There is much speculation that neither of them is having an affair, rather the couple had simply grown apart. The Gores own homes in Nashville and Montecito, Ca, plus the Gore family homestead in Carthage, Tenn. The Gores have four adult children, Karenna, Kristin, Sarah and Albert III. It’s unclear where Tipper will choose to live; the couple’s grandchildren are all in New York.

The Gores met at his high school prom and when he went off to Harvard, she entered Garland Junior College in Boston. They married in May, 1970 at the Washington National Cathedral. Both had grown up in this area, Tipper with her mother and grandmother in suburban Virginia after her parents divorced, and young Al and his family in the swank Fairfax Hotel on Washington’s embassy row, where they lived while his father, Albert Gore Sr. , served in the House and Senate from Tennessee.

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.”

The Gores portrayed an image of a happily married couple during his eight-year stint as vice president in the 1990s and a presidential candidate in 2000. The image of their warm relationship stood in sharp contrast to the Clinton marriage rocked by Bill Clinton’s affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, a scandal that hung over Gore’s own presidential campaign. Al Gore at the time said his wife was “someone I’ve loved with my whole heart since the night of my high school senior prom.”

Apparently for some, love comes with an expiration date. It seems that times can change and having 40 years of marriage under one’s belt is no guarentee of being married forever.
