South Carolina First Lady Jenny Sanford filed for divorce today, saying that reconciliation with her husband, Gov. Mark Sanford, is simply not possible.
Because Mark and I are public figures, we have naturally had less privacy with which to deal with our difficulties than do other couples. Indeed, I know it will soon become known so I choose to release this brief notice that I am now filing for divorce. This came after many unsuccessful efforts at reconciliation, yet I am still dedicated to keeping the process that lies ahead peaceful for our family.
Jenny moved out of the governor's mansion in August after news of Mark's extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina. She's asking for prayers.
