Tipper saw herself walking into the "global warming" sunset. She decided to pull the plug and cut al loose
Al gore is stunned after he is told his wife tipper is a closet denier of "climate change" or "global warming". She also said their bed was so cold even global warming could not have warmed it up. Al gore offered to deny global warming to reconcile with his wife. She told him the sun would freeze over before they would reconcile.
Then al gore offered to return his academy award, nobel peace prize, berkeley medal, roger revelle prize, NAACP image award, grammy award, national civil rights museum freedom award, honorary doctorate in humane letters, primetime emmy award, prince of asturias award, quill award and webby award. Gore said, "Our love story marriage has broken up because george bush stole the 2000 election."
Tipper told him his awards didn't mean anything to her. She said, quote: "I lived with an IDIOT for 40 years, acting as if he deserved his awards. I would like to give my husband an award, its the frankenstein award because he has been a frankenstein of a husband and a cold fish of a lover."
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, are separating after 40 years of marriage.
According to an e-mail circulated among the couple's friends and obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, the Gores said it was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."
Friends of the couple said that they had grown apart.
Al Gore is 62 and Tipper Gore is 61. No specifics were given in the Gores' statement about their separation. Friends of the couple said that they had grown apart.
Coontz quoted an AARP study of divorces after long marriages that found men often initiate divorce proceedings because they have found someone else, while women pull the plug because they are tired of "putting up with stuff."
The Lilac Tree in Evanston hosts a program called Divorce University, which brings women going through divorce together with lawyers, mediators and other experts. Carol Patinkin, executive director of The Lilac Tree, said half of the 101 participants who answered a survey at the program in April were leaving relationships of 20 or more years. Of those, 14 percent had been together more than 30 years.
Ila Chaiken, a social worker at The Lilac Tree, saw her marriage to her high school sweetheart unravel after 25 years. She knows all too well the terrain that Tipper Gore is traversing.
"Most women think it's going to be forever," Chaiken said.
Chaiken has had numerous clients in the same age range as Tipper Gore, many of whom "see themselves walking into the sunset … and then they are cut loose."

"Love means never having to say you're sorry" is a line from the novel and 1970 film Love Story starring Ali MacGraw and Ryan O'Neal.
Tommy Lee Jones moved to New York to become an actor, making his Broadway debut in 1969's A Patriot for Me in a number of supporting roles. In 1970, he landed his first film role, appropriately playing a Harvard student in Love Story (Erich Segal, the author of "Love Story," said that he based the lead character of Oliver on the two undergrad roommates he knew while teaching at Harvard, Tommy Lee Jones and AL Gore).
