If you're keeping score at home, the news that Al and Tipper Gore's daughter Karena Gore Schiff has filed for divorce from her husband, Andrew Schiff, brings the week's tally of that family's breakups to two.

According to the CDC, the U.S. divorce rate continues to hover around the 50-percent mark. But even using that somewhat grim marker for comparison sake, the Gore family isn't doing all that well when it comes the "death do us part" part of the marital vow.

Al and Tipper have four children. Here, then, is a breakdown of where the entire family stands vis-a-vis the bonds of matrimony.

Albert Gore III: Still single.

Sarah LaFon Gore: Married to Bill Lee in 2007.

Kristin Gore: Divorced from husband Paul Cussak in 2009. They were married in 2005.

Karena Gore Schiff: Filing for divorce from Dr. Andrew Schiff.

Al and Tipper Gore: Separated after 40 years of marriage.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.

Why make divorce such an issue with any family? It is hard enough for a family going through this without the whold world knowing. People should have privacy, but there is no privacy left anymore or so it seems. I had rather read good news.

How long will it be, do you think, until Rachael Uchitel and Gloria Allred get involved in these stories?

Could you be any more tacky & cold if you tried? What is the author of this arcticle's "score card?" How many divorces in your family?
Get a life & stop taking mean swipes at other's.
