The famous couple, Sarah and Todd Palin, sadly appear to be filing for a divorce:
DC EXAMINER – Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and her husband Todd Palin have filed for divorce in Anchorage Superior Court.
Citing “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife,” the court document, filed on Friday, uses initials instead of full names, but lists the date of the Palin marriage and the birth date of their child, Trig, 11, who had Down Syndrome, for whom they filed joint custody.
Anchorage attorney Kimberloo Colbo is representing Todd, 55, and has asked the court to keep the case confidential. As well as Trig, the couple has four adult children, Track, 30, Bristol, 28, Willow, 25, and Piper, 18.
There have long been rumors of a Palin divorce. A decade ago, People magazine reported alleged “extramarital affairs on both sides and an impending divorce” and claims that she was planning a move to Montana. A “Palin rep” responded at the time: “No truth to any of the rumors. No divorce. No affairs. No land in Montana. Nothing! All lies and fabrications!” Sarah Palin posted on her Facebook page that “yet again, some so-called journalists have decided to make up a story.”
What a terrible shame.
I know the Palin children have had their issues, but I hate to see such a big family torn apart by divorce.
I don’t know what else to say, other than to hope they can find a way to reconcile before the divorce is final.
