Hulk smash!

See subject line.

Al and Tipper

So, there is much hand-wringing and/or snickering, from pundits, media, and the average Joe dem (hand-wringing) and GOP (snickering) that Al and Tipper Gore are separating.

For the record, the average marriage in America, accounting for divorce and mortality, is 24 years. Al and Tipper have been married for 40.

For the record, the average length of marriage in America before divorce ends it is 8 years. Al and Tipper were married for 40.

No matter how you look at it, their marriage is a testament to perseverance, mutual support, and responsibility. They're even ending their marriage with dignity.

Forty years, people. Think about it. Neither hand-wringing nor snickering are appropriate. I say "Bravo!"
