The husband of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has filed for divorce after 31 years of marriage according to documents reported by the Anchorage Daily News.

55-year-old Todd Palin submitted the papers to the Anchorage Superior Court on August 29.

Sarah Palin is best known for running for vice president on the Republican ticket with the late Sen. John McCain in 2008. They lost that election to Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

The Palins have five children. Todd Palin asked for shared custody of their 11-year-old child Trig, who has Down Syndrome.

His reasoning for the divorce was "incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife."

Sarah Palin was a vocal supporter of then-candidate Donald Trump in the 2012 election, and continued promoting his policies after he was elected.

She most recently made headlines after her lawsuit against the New York Times was reinstated in August. She sued for defamation after they falsely claimed that there was a link between the Gabby Giffords mass attack in Tucson, Arizona, and her political action committee.
