Palin Divorce #2

Sarah's Sister-in-Law

Pulls Plug on Marriage

12/31/2012 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1228_sarah_palin_01Sarah Palin's son isn't the only Palin filing for divorce ... Sarah's sister-in-law has pulled the trigger on her marriage too, TMZ has learned.

Wendy Palin -- who's married to Todd Palin's brother James -- filed the papers in Alaska this summer, citing an "incompatibility of temperament" that makes it impossible to live together.

According to the docs, Wendy and James were married in 2000, separated in July 2012 ... and are currently living apart. They have one daughter who was born in 2002.

Wendy is seeking sole legal custody and primary physical custody of the child -- but James has already filed a response, demanding joint custody.

A hearing is set for January -- but until then Wendy has primary custody and James gets visitation ... as long as he lays off booze for 24 hours before seeing his daughter.

Really TMZ ? You are running a story about a divorce where the man in the divorce is the brother of a man who is married to a woman who was the vice presidential candidate of the loosing party in the Presidential election of 2008. In 2000 Joseph Lieberman was the vice presidential candidate of the loosing party. If Joseph Lieberman's wife (Hadassah Lieberman) sister or brother were to get a divorce would you run that story also?

only read the article to see what James and Wendy named their kid. Wanted to see which side of the family came up with the weird names. Sarah's kids came up with where they were conceived: Track behind the race tracks; Bristol was named for the hotel; Willow beneath the old ***** willow tree in the back yard; Piper in her Dad's airplane; and Trig after a romantic horse ride. Oh, the shallowness of young love in Wasilla.

I'm sorry, how is this Sarah Palin's fault? The media is always going to be out to get her. The only thing this woman has done wrong is be a staunch Conservative. The "toleran" left will crucify her any chance it gets. Hm.
