Sarah Palin, Former Governor Of Alaska, Opens Up About Divorce

Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate opened up about her divorce in a recent interview with Dr. James Dobson, founder of the Family Talk Christian Ministry.

She found out her husband of 31 years, Todd Palin, was seeking a divorce via an email from his attorney. She received the mail and was devastated. It was a June 19, and a day she will never forget- “I’ll never forget it” – almost three months before Todd officially filed in September, on his birthday.


Court documents previously revealed Todd cited “incompatibility of temperament” and that “they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.”

The divorce filing came a week after their wedding anniversary. Speaking on how she felt, she said- “I thought I got shot, ‘Wow, maybe except the death of a child, I don’t know what could be more [hurtful].’ Yeah, it hurts.”

Despite Todd’s filing, Sarah says their marriage “is not over over” and told Dobson that they’re “going through counseling.”

When Dobson asked how people could pray for her, Sarah said “the prayer would be for, of course, God’s will to be done, but that God would make sure that we know that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.”

“But it still has to be mowed,” Dobson interrupted. “And it still has to be mowed, yeah!” she repeated.

Sarah, who was the 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee, resigned as governor in 2009. She and Todd share five children, who Sarah claims are “mad” and anti-divorce, which “helps” her case as reported by Yahoo News.
