Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper are separating after four decades of marriage. They just celebrated their 40th anniversary two weeks ago.

The Gores called the separation “a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together.”

The news was first reported by Politico and confirmed by a Gore spokeswoman.

The couple made the announcement in an “Email from Al and Tipper Gore.”

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.
