Al and Tipper Gore Separating

Former Vice President Al Gore is separating from his wife, Tipper, just two weeks after celebrating their 40th anniversary.

In an e-mail obtained by the Associated Press and Politico, the Gores said it was "a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration." The Gores met at a high-school graduation dance, were married on May 19, 1970, and have four children. In 2002, Al and Tipper Gore wrote two books on family values: Joined at the Heart and Spirit of Family.

CT profiled Al Gore as a presidential candidate in 2000, before he eventually lost to Republican George W. Bush. CT also covered some of his environmental work, advocacy that eventually led to the documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" and a Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.
