Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s husband reportedly filed for divorce, calling the marriage “irretrievably broken.”
According to a report by The Hill, Perry Greene asked the Floyd County Superior Court in his Wednesday filing to seal the divorce proceedings, “because the parties’ significant privacy interest in sealing the records outweighs the public’s minuscule interest in access those records.
The hill reported that Mrs. Greene, Republican of Georgia, signed a receipt for the presentation of her husband, which says that the couple has already separated.
Mr. Greene’s petition asks for an equitable division of the couple’s assets and debts.
“Marriage is a wonderful thing and I firmly believe in it. Our society is made up of a husband and wife creating a family to nurture and protect,” Ms. Greene said in a statement to The Hill.
“Together, Perry and I have built our family and raised three great children. He gave me the best job title you can earn: Mom. I will always be grateful for what a good father he is to our children,” she said.
The couple’s marriage is a “private and personal” matter, he added in his statement, which did not directly confirm or deny the filing.
In her statement, Greene called the congresswoman her “best friend.”
“Our family is the most important thing we have ever done. As we go down different paths, we will continue to focus on our 3 amazing children and their future endeavors and our friendship.” he said.
