Sad news today, as it appears that Todd Palin, husband of former Vice-presidential candidate and Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin has filed for divorce.
Todd cites “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife” in the divorce filings.
The filings use initials and not full names, but local Alaskan reporters quickly pieced together the story.
The couple have been married for 31 years and the filing is asking for joint custody of their remaining minor child Trig.
The Anchorage Daily News reported that Todd Palin filed for divorce from former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, his wife of 31 years.
In a document filed on Friday in Anchorage Superior Court, 55-year-old Todd Palin asked to dissolve the marriage, citing an “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.”
The divorce filing written with initials rather than full names, identifies the couple’s marriage date and the birth date of their only child who is a minor, Trig Palin. The filing asks for joint legal custody of the child.
Anchorage attorney Kimberlee Colbo is representing Todd Palin in the divorce. In a filing, Colbo said she would ask the court to designate the divorce confidential as it moves forward.
Colbo didn’t immediately respond on Monday to a request for comment from Todd Palin. For the ones who don’t know, Sarah Palin, 55, was elected governor of Alaska in 2006.
