Split Up -- or Suck it Up & Shut the H*ll Up!

I wasn't going to do this post out of concern I might come across as a Negative Nellie (and you know the first rule of blogging: never let them see your real self ;-) or they may never return to your blog), but once I got confirmation of my opinion from my buddy Rebecca on Twitter, I figured I'd have at it.

Al and Tipper - When you heard the news yesterday- were you thinking: If they made it to 40 years, what's 10 more years of torture?? At least then they could have the big 50th Anniversary shindig...

On a related note, I was telling MB about my new dance class (at 10:00 last night) and he seriously said, "can you shorten this a little" and motioned for me to hurry up with a rolling hand motion. (I told him I'd be putting his quote on the blog - I mean what could be more interesting than hearing all the exciting details!) - *Gasp* Are we the next Al and Tipper? More like Larry and Shawn minus cheating with the sister & hot Latin baseball coach - darn!

What's that? You were looking for a more heartfelt marriage tribute, well, then head on over to Jenny Mac's place. Something tells me Johnny Mac is "all ears" when it comes to her dance stories *sighs* ;-)

Couldn't happen to a nicer person.

I always threaten my husband with, "I'm going to blog this."

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

I said the same thing to my husband when we were watching the news last night...after 40 years, wouldn't you just stick it out??? if you put up with someone that long, what's a few more years?!

Merri Ann said...

Those icky PDA's were a telltale sign ... she looked like she was barely tolerating it.

It is weird about the timing. Me thinks we shall hear about some sordid stuff at a later date. I think there is more to the story to come ... he has been caught in a few "non-truths" in the past.

Rebecca Jo said...

HAHA... oh yeah - when it was on TV last night, my husband even said, "How do you just not stay together for the heck of it after that long?"... see, everyone is thinking it! Even MEN! :)

Salt said...

I bet he would be such a snoozer of a husband. I'm as liberal as they come, but I can't imagine how Tipper listened to that voice for 40 years.

Dual Mom said...

I suspect one of them has a really young somethin' somethin' on the side. Or they are gay. Who breaks up after 40 years of marriage?

mac said...

Al Gore is boring. Tipper is too pushy (PMRC anyone?). They were made for each other ;-)


I'd like to hear about your new dance class!

Tracie said...

I haven't even been married for 20 years and I think "why bother with a divorce?" There's something else going on.

Better read my post today...

Herding Cats said...

Eh, I like the Gores, but sadly this stuff happens to oh, 50% of the population.

M-Cat said...

Didn't hear about the Gore's guess I should go check it out. No big surprise to me.

And please, for the love of all that is holy and the Yankees, BE REAL on your blog. Real followers will stay with you. Can't stand fakers!! : )

Mommy, I'm Home said...

After 40 years, I'm with you. They should have stuck it out for 50...

Yankee Girl said...

Call me lame, but I was a little sad when I read about the split! 40 years is a long time....why would they just give it all up now? An article said they were just moving in different directions and it was totally amicable, but I don't believe it. I want to know the real story!

McVal said...

Frankly I'm not surprised... I don't think it was her idea to have that kiss on the stage... and with his ideas... I'm just waiting for her tell-all book!

Randi Troxell said...

i'm sorry but i wouldn't want a day of my life to be spent with al gore...

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

I totally threaten to blog this too.

blueviolet said...

I filed for divorce a couple months before my 25th anniversary and I was thinking...24 years? That's dumb. Well, there was a part of me that was happy we made it through our anniversary (last week) before the divorce was final, just so I can say I was married for 25 years instead of 24. Is that ridiculous or what?

Amanda said...

Maybe she got sick of hearing about how he invented the internet. Or saved the planet. or just hearing him talk in general.

*All wretched excuses for divorcing someone, dont get me wrong.


I loved your opening paragraph. So true! Some times when folks tell me, of you are such a great mom, I just want to scream NO I AM NOT I SUCK AT THIS AND WANT TO GIVE UP ALL THE TIME!

But I usually just smile and say thanks. :)

alessandra said...

Hey dude! thank you for coming, not that my blog stinks, anyway ;)

Mommyof2girlz said...

My hubby defiantly pays more mind to his p's and q's knowing that I'll blog just about anything having to do with our family..lol

Laura said...

What's another 10 years of torture? - Hahaha love it. He just annoys me, and I really just can't take her seriously with a name like Tipper. :)

Joy said...

I heard today that they're blaming their breakup on Bush.

I think I've heard it all now.

Thanks for stopping by and for the kudos about my art-y announcement!

xoxo
