(PresidentialHill.com)- Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and her husband, Perry Greene, have filed for divorce, with her husband requesting that personal and financial information be kept sealed from the public, according to Newsweek. He filed for divorce in Floyd County Superior Court in Georgia, calling the marriage “irretrievably broken,” according to court documents.
The two have been married for 27 years and have been in a “bona-fide separation” since before the papers were filed. They married in August 1995 when the congresswoman was still in college.
Without specifying any details, Mr. Greene said that “the record will contain sensitive personal and financial information, the public disclosure of which would negatively impact the parties’ privacy interests,” adding that the two of them had “significant” privacy interests that outweigh the “public’s miniscule interest in access to said records.”
The soon-to-be-divorced couple had nothing but good things to say about the other. Mr. 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 three incredible kids and their future endeavors and our friendship,” Perry Greene said.
Mrs. Greene said that the divorce was a private and personal matter, but still thanked her husband as a father and for their family.
“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,” she said in a statement, calling him a great dad to their children.
In February 2021, Daily Mail reported that the congresswoman had affairs with two people she met in 2012 at a Georgia gym, but she denies the allegations as “ridiculous tabloid garbage.”
