SARAH Palin is reportedly set for divorce after her husband – dubbed “Alaska’s first dude” when she was governor – filed for a split on Friday.
Todd Palin cited “incompatibility of temperament” between himself and the 2008 Vice Presidential candidate in court papers, it’s claimed.

Although the documents filed in Anchorage Superior Court don’t explicitly name the couple, their initials and birth dates match.
The wedding date and the initials given for their only young child are also a match to the couple – who have been married for 31 years.
Trig Paxon Van Palin, the youngest of the couple’s five children, was born on April 18, 2008.
That is the same birth date date given in the docs for a child named only as T.P.V.P.
31 YEARS OF MARRIAGE
The Palins, both 55, married in 1988.
After Sarah Palin became the Republican governor of Alaska in 2006, Todd Palin continued to fish commercially and work an oil field job.
Their lives were ever changed after Republican presidential candidate John McCain picked Sarah Palin as his running mate.
During her speech to the Republican National Convention, Palin said of her husband: “We met in high school, and two decades and five children later, he’s still my guy.”
Palin and the late John McCain lost the election to Barack Obama and Joe Biden – and she stepped down as Alaska governor in 2009.
She went on to become one of then-candidate Donald Trump’s earliest supporters in his successful bid for the White House in 2016.
The family is no stranger to domestic upheavals.
Soon after she joined the McCain ticket, it emerged that Palin’s then-teenage daughter Bristol was pregnant.
And the couple’s eldest son, Track, served less than two months at an Anchorage halfway house after assaulting his father in 2017.
Track Palin was also accused of punching his then-girlfriend in 2016.
He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of a firearm while intoxicated, and other charges were dismissed.
A brawl broke out at an Anchorage house party involving members of Sarah Palin’s family in 2014.
It was alleged that Bristol Palin punched the host several times in the face.
No arrests were made, and no one wanted to press charges, according to a police report.
In the divorce filing believed to be from Todd Palin, he seeks joint custody of the child living at home.
He also wants an “equitable division” of marital debts and assets.
The complaint said: “There is an incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to continue to live together as man and wife.”
Kimberlee Colbo, an Anchorage attorney thought to be working for Mr Palin, didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

She filed paperwork to keep the divorce confidential to protect the privacy of the child.
Colbo also has represented Dakota Meyer in divorce proceedings from the Palins’ eldest daughter, Bristol.
Anchorage blogger Craig Medred first reported on the divorce.
