Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) husband filed for divorce Wednesday.
According to court documents, Perry Greene is ending the couple’s 27 year union on the grounds that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.”
Greene is also asking the court to seal the divorce proceedings, “because the parties’ significant privacy interest in sealing the records outweighs the public’s miniscule interest in access to said records.”
A signed document included in the Fulton County court docket confirmed Greene acknowledged receipt of her husband’s divorce filings.
“Marriage is a wonderful thing and I’m a firm believer in it. Our society is formed by a husband and wife creating a family to nurture and protect. Together, Perry and I formed our family and raised three great kids. He gave me the best job title you can ever earn: Mom,” Rep. Greene wrote in a statement. “I’ll always be grateful for how great of a dad he is to our children.”
In a separate statement Perry Greene called the congresswoman his “best friend for the last 29 years” and an “amazing mom.”
“Our family is our most important thing we have done. As we go on different paths we will continue to focus on our 3 incredible kids and their future endeavors and our friendship,” Perry Greene said.
