Todd Palin appears to have filed for divorce from former Alaska governor and one-time vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, his wife of 31 years.
In a document filed Friday in Anchorage Superior Court, Todd Palin, 55, 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 uses initials rather than full names, but identifies the couples 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.

She should have declined to endorse him in his last reelection bid, but she was too loyal to do that.
They’re both in my prayers...
Todd raced snow machines I believe.
Stealing it! 3,2,1 done!
I absolutely could be wrong but I’ve always had the sense that he was rather low rent...a bit of a loser. If,by chance,my hunch is correct then he’s doing governor Palin a huge favor.
To speculate they probably stayed as long as they could for the sake of the children. Divorce is nasty business but I would never condemn anyone in that situation.
Well the borderline schadenfreude glee exhibited by some of the comments here is rather...catty.
I'm actually shocked. I know their lives have moved in different directions, but I guess I was under the assumption that they were a rock-solid couple.
Sad. Prayers for Sarah and Todd, and for their family.
Marriages can be complicated.
Maybe Todd can’t get it up anymore.
That’s just as ridiculous as people shouting about menopause.
I realize that not everybody here followed Palins career prior to her veep nomination, but some of us did and plus there is literature by Alaskans and others out there who profiled the early rise of Palin and Todds presence loomed large even in Governor Palins political dealings while in office. Hes no dummy. And your comments are proof that Tina Fey rather than reality has shaped the perspectives of people even sympathetic to them. Thats the power of the media in setting the narrative.
It was quite a 24-hours...and the crowd loved her!
I'll never forget that either! Someone started a great thead here, and FReepers were following the tail number on the private plane that flew Sarah and her family from Alaska. We FReepers knew Sarah Palin was to be John McCain's pick for VP before everybody else it seemed.
I'm shocked and saddened that Sarah and Todd are divorcing...
So true! At the time the Drudge Report was on their game as well.
Plans for him to lose. He nearly won the thing because of her. It totally caught them off guard. McCain wanted Obama to win. He never thought he would win. Sarah raised up a base and they had to take her out.
She is indeed a bonemaker, Bonemaker. :-)
“the Midwest screeching finally got to him”
She grew up in Alaska.
Twas fun,waiting to see who got off the planes.:)
Todd crashed his “snow machine” (snow mobile) at a high speed just before the Florida primary in 2016. He was very badly hurt.
Sarah was in Florida at the time campaigning with candidate Donald Trump. She hurried back to Alaska after briefly talking to the crowd and mentioned Todd’s accident.
