The husband of Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has filed for divorce this Wednesday, saying in his divorce filing that their marriage is irretrievably broken.
Perry Greene has asked the Fulton County Superior Court to seal the divorce proceedings, “because the parties’ significant privacy interest in sealing the records outweighs the public’s miniscule interest in access to said records,” according to The Hill.
He added that “sensitive personal and financial information” will likely be revealed throughout the case, “which would negatively impact the parties’ privacy interests.”
Speaking to The Hill, the divisive GOP lawmaker said that marriage “is a wonderful thing and I’m a firm believer in it.”
“Our society is formed by a husband and wife creating a family to nurture and protect,” Greene said. “Together, Perry and I formed our family and raised three great kids. He gave me the best job title you can ever earn: Mom. I’ll always be grateful for how great of a dad he is to our children.”
She added that the matter is “private and personal.”
In a statement of his own, Perry Greene said that his former wife is his “best friend.”
“Our family is our most important thing we have done. As we go on different paths we will continue to focus on our 3 incredible kids and their future endeavors and our friendship,” he said.
