Al Gore, former Vice President to Bill Clinton and environmental advocate, and his wife Tipper are separating after 40 years of marriage, according to an e-mail circulated today by the former couple, which stated,
“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 couple met at a high school graduation dance and were married on May 19, 1970.
Born Mary Elizabeth Aitcheson, Tipper is known as a professional photographer and for her work with the Parents Music Resource Center. The Gores have four adult children: Karenna, Kristin, Sarah and Albert III.
