Well, there’s not much to say. No major scandals, sleazy affairs and all that other stuff that the media loves to latch onto when a ‘celebrity’ couple calls it quits. 40 years of marriage is a good chunk of time and even their close friends are surprised by the divorce. Al and Tipper claim that the end of their relationship is ‘mutual’ – no hard feelings…. I wonder how many of those 40 years were spent by Al and Tipper already checked out of the relationship – a common problem for many couples. At least Al doesn’t have to move into a dingy hotel and eat frozen food for breakfast, lunch and dinner (unless he likes that sort of thing). We here at Sudden Bachelor wish Al well. He seems like a nice enough guy – An Inconvenient Truth was a good movie and Current TV has some cool shows…. Welcome to Sudden Bachelorhood.
