Sarah Palin Says She Found Out Husband Todd Was Divorcing Her in an Email

Sarah Palin Says She Found Out Husband Todd Was Divorcing Her in an Email

Sarah Palin is opening up about her split from husband Todd Palin.

In a new interview with Christian author James Dobson, the 55-year-old former Alaska governor says she found out that Todd was seeking a divorce while she was routinely checking her email inbox.

Sarah claimed she learned Todd wanted a divorce when one of his lawyers emailed her in June.

“It was devastating. I thought I got shot,” Sarah revealed about how she felt after the filing became official in September, on Todd’s 55th birthday and a week after their 31st wedding anniversary.

Sarah went on to say that she and Todd are now working on repairing their relationship.

“We’re going through counseling now, so it’s not over, over,” Sarah said. “Attorneys are getting rich off of us and I don’t like that whole system. It makes no sense to me.”

Sarah added: “God doesn’t want families to split up. I know that. To me, in a general sense, marriage is so extremely important as foundation of our nation. It helps make America that much greater, is that security of family. I’m not to the point of wanting mine to be split.”

Sarah and Todd share five kids: Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper, and Trig.
