The couple wrote an email that found its way to Politico, saying, "We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate."

The email continues, "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 has 4 kids.

Roughly one year ago today -- the couple's daughter Kristin Gore filed for divorce from her husband Paul Cusack.

Shifty eye Al! Good for Tipper. It's about time someone put this lying sack of dog poo in an air tight doggie bag and throw his lying ass far,far away!!! Hope she gets his billions he is going to make off the global warming lie. Now we know why he bought an ocean front house...... but wait... isn't global warming going to cause the oceans to raise and his house will fall in the ocean in just a year or two. Guess he bought the house for Tipper! Watch out Tipper, Old Al is out to get you!!

Interesting that it turns out the Clintons have a more stable marriage than the Gores.

"19. She's famous for her opposition to freedom of speech and her attempts to censor the music industry. She's pretty much a Rush Limbaugh ditto-head. "



She's a liberal who doesn't think pornography and violence should be marketed to children. She asked for VOLUNTARY ratings on Albums so that people could decide if their children should listen. Do you also get all juvenile and silly over movie ratings?

40 years is a long time to suddenly call it a day. I never approved of Tipper's anti-rock lyrics campaign (amazing how many rock stars completely forgot that, when they supported him during his presidential bid) but I wish her well. I can't imagine how she put up with his global warming crap this past 10 years! Good luck in the future tipper!

Good Luck, trying to figure out which of these two is more peculiar!!! One of them tried to become a dictator by moderating and enforcing control over music lyrics. The other one has become infinitely wealthy, by promoting money generating Global Warming business ventures. If he actually believed the crap that came out of his own mouth, he would choose to live in the same manner that he tries to impose on others. This guy is a misguided goofball, at best. He has been radically wrong about the majority of his major proposals. Al probably used his political fame to get into the pants of an "earthy", twenty something supporter of his.

This may be a leap here, but I am going to assume that they stayed married for so long for the same reason that Bill and Hillary are still together. To keep the political career going. As long as Hillary has a chance to become president, they are gonna stay together. She stuck with him during his crap, now he has to pay the price by staying with her.



Al must have given up on his chance of gaining any higher status in politics.

It's also possible that Bill and Hillary actually like each other. Some people don't want to accept that.
