If you thought that Jim Carrey’s announcement to the world that he and Jenny McCarthy had split via Twitter, wait until you hear the way that Al Gore announced his divorce from Tipper Gore. The two decided that the best way to tell their friends and family that they were getting a divorce is through an email that made the rounds through their inner circle.
When I first heard that the two were divorcing, I didn’t think too much of it. I like Al Gore, and I thought it was incredibly sad that something that lasted for 40 years was coming to an end. But I was disgusted when I read that they made the announcement over email. I would hope that you would have more respect for such a meaningful part of your life than just to fire off a group email. Digital Spy has the details,
“Al Gore and wife Tipper have separated after 40 years of marriage.
The couple announced their split in an email sent to friends and family on Tuesday, reports Politico.
“We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate,” read the message.
It continued: “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 email was confirmed to be legitimate by the office of Al and Tipper, according to the report.
The former vice president of the US and his wife have four children together.”
I don’t understand why you would put that in writing if all you really want is your privacy during the situation. What in hell ever happened to good ol’ fashioned family meetings? Has it really gotten to the point that we can’t at least pick up a phone and tell our loved ones one-on-one than just send a blanket statement, as if they were sending off a press release. It’s sad that they’re divorcing and that there are children in the mix to suffer the brunt of it. But it’s even more sad that divorce announcements are now being sent to your nearest Inbox.
