After 40 years of marriage, Al Gore and his wife Tipper are separating.
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 information in the e-mail was confirmed by Gore's press official, Kalee Kreider.
