The husband of Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has filed for divorce after 27 years together. 

Perry Greene, according to news reports, filed the divorce document in a Georgia court Wednesday morning, saying the marriage is "irretrievably broken," a common reason given for divorce in court.

The couple shares three adult children together. Court documents show they have been separated and still are.

"Additional grounds" for divorce may be added to the filing.

"Together, Perry and I formed our family and raised three great kids," the Republican congresswoman said Wednesday evening in a statement to the news media. "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. This is a private and personal matter and I ask that the media respect our privacy at this time."

A petition was also filed to seal the divorce proceedings due to "confidential and sensitive information." A hearing date on the petition motion has yet to be set.
