The algores are no more

Saw  a report today announcing that the algores  will be separating after 40 years of  marriage. Sadly, the breakup of a 40 year-long marriage would not be newsworthy were they not prominent people.  I am always distressed when I read news like this. Just like any  married couple of that duration, they have been through many difficult things. We  do not know why they are separating but a  spokesperson is quoted as saying they just grew apart. They also said that the decision was made after ” long and careful consideration.”

This is one of those things that just  baffle me. How exactly  does one grow apart anyway?

Fyi, for the moment there is no mention of divorce or any specific reason for the separation or the timing of the announcement, less than 2 weeks after their 4oth anniversary.

  1. Not a fan of either one, but I am always sorry to hear about such things.
