Pete Rose Files for Divorce

3/4/2011 9:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pete Rose has finally OFFICIALLY pulled the trigger on his 26-year marriage ... by filing divorce papers ... TMZ has learned.

Pete Rose Divorce

The former MLB great filed docs in L.A. County Superior Court asking a judge to end his marriage to Carol Rose .. whom he married in 1984.

Pete cites irreconcilable differences for the split.

According to the docs, Pete is willing to pay for spousal support -- but he doesn't offer up a specific amount.

Pete also lists the date of separation as "TBD" -- which is interesting because he's been dating a model named Kiana Kim since 2009 ... and even brought her on the Howard Stern Show last year to brag about their sex lives.

It's unfortunate that men seem to feel the need to try and recapture their youth. Why would you throw away a 20 something year marriage instead of trying to work things out. I'm seeing this happen more and more these days. I lost my husband of 13 years and I would give anything to have him back. He made me feel like a queen even though he was 51 and I was not a "twenty something" and had our kids so obviously I wasn't a bikini model even though I only way 115 lbs. We grew together and accepted each other,faults and all. We "worked" our problems out and never went to be angry with each other, even if it meant putting a disagreement on hold till a later time. Usually by then, it didn't seem so huge anymore. The old men will be old alone when they are of no use anymore to someone that only wants to watch TV and go to bed at 9. It's sad that committment now only means "till the new young thing comes along"... just my opinion but it really makes me sad.

Divorce the loyal, loving wife of decades for a younger one. And when he's on his last dollar the younger golddigger will then trade him with a yunger, hunky man with more money. Then he will be left peniless WITHOUT A WOMAN BY HIMSELF.

Good for the loyal, loving wife and I wish her all the best.
