This just in. Former presidential hopeful Al Gore and his wife Tipper are splitting after 40 years of marriage. Stay tuned for updates.
UPDATE: Yahoo News is reporting that the Gores sent and email to their friends telling them of the split, which, they mutually claim comes after great consideration. The Gores’ four adult children Karenna, Albert III, Sarah and Kristin are saddened, as is everyone associated with this couple, who, prior to this announcement, seemed like a match made in heaven. (They met in high school and apparently went to prom together, although, this has not been fact checked so don’t quote me on that.)
According to the New York Times, it was Politico that broke the story, and the Gores confirmed the “authenticity fo the email.” Here is what the Gores reportedly said in the email, per the Times.
“We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought we have decided to separate,” the couple said. “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.”
Wow. Shocking. Stunning. Truly. They were the last couple that seemed like they were faking it. They seemed truly in love, the real thing. What is going on with these political marriages? Shocks, Bill and Hillary seemed the most shaky marriage in Washington and it’s turning out that theirs may have been the strongest. It’s wild. Washington is the Wild, Wild West.
