Court Papers Show that Sarah and Todd Palin are Getting a Divorce

Court papers appear to show that after 31 years of marriage, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd, are apparently pursuing legal separation.

‘Incompatibility of temperament between the parties’

The papers show that Todd Palin officially filed for a divorce from the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee in the Anchorage Superior Court. The Anchorage Daily News reports that his stated reason was “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.”

Alaska blogger Craig Medred was the first person to report news of the divorce, when he noticed that the court filing records only indicated that a “TMP” was seeking a divorce from an “SLP.”

For the record, the Tea Party favorite’s full name is Sarah Louise Palin. Her husband’s full name is Todd Mitchell Palin.

It wasn’t hard to figure out and connect the dots, once you also looked at their birthdays listed in the document.

The papers also show that the couple are seeking joint custody of their 11-year-old son, Trig. Their other children are all adults.

Sarah Palin became a national political celebrity when she became the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, running with presidential nominee Sen. John McCain.

The Palins’ Legacy

Though that duo obviously lost to Barack Obama and Joe Biden, Palin remained a popular and influential figure with the Republican Party and larger conservative movement, endorsing Tea Party candidates across the country, helping them to victory.

Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz were boosted by their Palin endorsements, among many others, at both national and state levels.

While being in the public eye warrants reporting on the couple’s split, many families have had to go through divorce, and those matters should be dealt with by the family internally as much as possible.

So on that note, we wish the Palin family all the best as they go through what must be a difficult time.
