Track Palin, the oldest son of Alaska governor and former Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has filed for divorce just 18 months after getting married.
According to TMZ, 23-year-old Track and soon-to-be ex-wife Britta, who were married in May 2011, jointly filed for divorce in an Alaskan court.
Alaska law states, if a couple files jointly, they are acknowledging they have settled all issues involving finances, property, and child support. Before leaving, they had to watch a 48-minute video on the impact of divorce on children. The two have a sixteen-month-old daughter named Kyla.
Palin, an army reservist, was prompted to enlist by the attacks of 9/11, The Associated Press reports.
TMZ notes that Palin currently works as a commercial fisherman and hopes to go back to college someday.
It has not been reported as to why the two opted to end their marriage.
Track’s political mother was faced with divorce rumors back in 2010, Huffinton Post notes. A tabloid published a story saying Sarah and Todd were headed for a $20 million divorce. Todd laughed off the rumors saying to his wife, “Twenty million? Write me a check.”
