After Sarah Palin’s tragic shooting incident in 2008, her life has gotten way more complicated. She was running as vice president at the time of the incident.

And now, it got even worst…

Sarah Palin’s husband, Todd, reportedly filed for divorce after 30 years of marriage in Anchorage Superior Court Friday, citing an “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.”

In the filing, Todd requested joint custody of their son Trig Palin. Their other children, Willow, Track, Piper, and Bristol Palin, are all over 18.

This August, the high school sweethearts celebrated their 31st wedding anniversary. In a 2011 interview, the former governor of Alaska shared that she and Todd eloped in 1988 because they wanted to save their parents from having to pay for an elaborate wedding. However, she later said that she told her kids, “Don’t do what I did.”

The Palin family later rose to fame when Sarah was named as Sen. John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential elections. At the time, Palin was the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, but her quirky anecdotes about things like seeing Russia from her house made her a hit in the pop culture world, particularly on Saturday Night Live.

According to AWM:

During an interview with a Christian broadcaster, Palin discussed what it was like to have her husband begin the divorce process through email. It was a terror for her to see the divorce filing come through into her life.

“I thought I got shot,” Palin said.

Although Todd Palin is ready to call it quits in his marriage to the former governor of Alaska, Palin said that she is not ready to say goodbye. She told the Christian broadcaster that she was going through marriage counseling, and their marriage isn’t “over, over.” Instead, Palin said that attorneys are using this to nickel and dime them for everything possible, so they are “getting rich” off the Palins.

Palin told all her family’s details on the Christian show hosted by James Dobson called the Family Talk Christian ministry. Dobson said that the interview was conducted earlier and that Palin wanted her side of the story out into the public before the divorce proceedings run her family’s name through the mud.

Dobson asked his audience to spend time praying for the former Alaskan governor. Palin suggested a specific prayer that fans could provide her if they saw fit, which was:

“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.”

Dobson interrupted her and said, “It still has to be mowed.”

“And it still has to be mowed,” Palin agreed.

Palin explained that although her family is dissolving, unless marriage counseling helps, God doesn’t like it when families split up.

“And to me, in a general sense, marriage is so extremely important as the foundation of our nation. It helps make America that much greener, is that security of family, and I’m not to the point of wanting mine to be split,” she said.
