Looking through her social media posts, there is not even a single post about her love life or her partner in crime. Despite getting such exposure, she has been a professional individual to separate the boundary between personal life and professional life.

We may not be able to agree on a movie to watch on Saturday night or the perfect temperature for the bedroom, but we can both agree that today, we are as committed as ever to each other and our two children.

“, Sarah Palin’s husband files for divorce after 31 years of marriage. The probability of a first marriage ending in separation or divorce within the first five years is pretty high. Not to mention, just about everyone in my family gets divorced — that is if they ever get married at all. But what I didn’t know was that along with everything else, my relationship with my husband would get a much-needed reboot as well.
