America's premiere train-wreck political family added to the pileup this week after Track Palin and his wife Britta jointly filed for divorce. The two were married in 2011.
Alaskan law states that by filing together, they've already settled any issues that can arise from divorce, including property settlements, custody issues, and child support. The couple has a 1-year-old daughter.
According to TMZ, Track, an Army reservist and commercial fisherman, plans to go back to college.
Though lately more famous for reality TV than politics, Sarah Palin continues to spin her brand of right-wing views on Facebook and Fox News.
