Sarah Palin learned her husband wanted a divorce via an email from his attorney — but their marriage isn’t “over, over,” she said Tuesday.
The former Alaska governor and onetime vice presidential hopeful got the lawyer’s message on June 19, almost three months before her hubby Todd Palin filed for divorce, she told Christian broadcaster James Dobson on his “Family Talk” program.
“I’ll never forget it,” she said of the email.
Then, on Sept. 6, Todd’s birthday, and just a week after the couple’s 31st wedding anniversary, the filing came.
“It was devastating. I thought I got shot,” she said.
The couple, both 55, are going through counseling and their marriage isn’t “over, over” she said, adding attorneys are “getting rich” off them.
Later in the interview, she said God doesn’t want families to break up.
“Marriage is so extremely important as foundation of our nation,” she said.
“It helps make America that much greater, is that security of family, and I’m not to the point of wanting mine to be split.”
In court documents, Todd said the duo was suffering from an “incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife.”
They have five children, including one who is a minor, 11-year-old, Trig Paxson Van Palin.
The Palins intend to seek joint legal and physical custody, according to the filing.
