Washington: Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor’s husband Todd Palin has filed a document suggesting he wanted a divorce, the Associated Press reported on Monday.
Sarah came to nationwide prominence as the running mate of Republican presidential candidate Sen John McCain in 2008.
The newspaper reported that Alaska's former first gentleman asked, in a document filed on Friday in Anchorage Superior Court, that the couple's 31-year union be dissolved. The paper reported that Todd Palin cited "incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife."
The Palins, both 55, married in 1988 and have five children. According to the Alaskan blogger who first reported the Friday filing, the document does not include the couple's full names, instead referring to them by their initials: TMP and SLP. The divorce filing also reportedly listed the birth date of their only minor child, Trig, born in 2008, reported Washington Post.
