Todd Palin, husband of former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin, filed for divorce from his wife last Friday, according to reports. The couple had been married since 1988.

The complaint cites divorce on the basis of "incompatibility of temperament" and that "they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife," NBC News reported.

The divorce complaint filed at the Anchorage Superior Court only uses initials instead of full names  - SLP (Sarah Louise Palin) and TMP (Todd Mitchell Palin). Details from the filing include dates of birth that match the profiles of both Sarah and Todd, as well as information corresponding to the Palin family as a whole, such as number of children.


Though Sarah Palin stepped into the public eye after being tapped to be vice president for Republican presidential nominee John McCain in 2008, Todd himself didn't often make headlines and avoided publicity, even after the Palin family got into the reality TV show business.
