When a prominent couple decides to go their separate ways, especially after years of marriage like the Gore’s just did, everyone has their opinion as to what may caused this to happen. I’m no different then the rest of the world, I love to speculate and give my opinion on what I think, so here goes.
Was it infidelity, we may ask? It certainly doesn’t seem to be in this case. I have my doubts if there was any type of abuse in this marriage, especially physically. Could it possibly be just what the Gores told the press, they just slowly drifted apart? If I were a betting person, I would say that’s probably just what happened, sad as it may be. When life gets too busy to make time for each other, the structure of marriage, just like any other structure will probably start to crumble. Some of those structures can be fixed, others choose not to do that, and just move on. Obviously the Gores decided to move on and go their separate ways.
Al Gore is probably the most influential individual involved in the “going green campaign” to save the planet and our environment. Our planet has suffered a lot of abuse by all of us over the years. Since Al Gore finished his role as Vice President of the United States, he has pretty much put all his efforts into saving our “good earth”. He’s won a Nobel Prize for all his hard work, and he deserves it too. We definitely need a strong figure head like Al Gore to lead the monumental feat to clean up our act and help save the environment, and the job is time consuming, to say the least.
Tipper Gore is reportedly pursuing her own hobbies, and rightly so, as her husband is busy traveling the world in his efforts to save our planet. Photography is supposedly a hobby that is near and dear to her heart and she is very good at it from what America says.
While Al Gore is busy “going green”, Tipper is busy taking pictures. There you have it now, each of them is going their separate ways to pursue their own separate interests. There is no time left for the two of them as a couple. Without time for caring and sharing and nurturing the marriage, it’s bound to start to fall apart.
This is my take on what could have happened to cause Al and Tipper Gore’s 40 year marriage to end up in the divorce court. It is just my opinion, and my opinion only, and is not meant to be taken too seriously either. I’m no marriage counselor and I don’t pretend to be one so I could be totally wrong on the whole situation. But my speculation on this is probably just as accurate as some of the other rumors that are flying around about this marriage split.
Whatever it was that caused Al & Tipper Gore to separate is sad. I really admire both of them and wish them well wherever the rest of their lives may take them. I so wish they could have had a chance to occupy the “White House” and call it their home for 8 years, but I guess it wasn’t in God’s plan for them.
