Just over a month before the midterm elections, Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s husband has filed for a divorce. In court documents first reported by TMZ, Perry Greene calls the marriage “irretrievably broken” and says the couple had already been separated for some time. They tied the knot in college and are splitting after 27 years of marriage and raising three kids. The congresswoman’s campaign to spread Christian nationalist values is at odds with a high-profile divorce, especially at a time when she’s fighting for re-election in Georgia against Democrat Marcus Flowers.

For her part, Marjorie Taylor Greene emphasised that “marriage is a wonderful thing and I’m a firm believer in it.” In a statement, she added that “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.”Perry wants their assets to be split equally, according to the court filing, and requests that all divorce-related documents be put under seal, since they will “contain sensitive personal and financial information, the public disclosure of which would negatively impact the parties’ privacy interests.”
