Former Alaska Governor and one time Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's husband, Todd, appears to have filed for divorce.

The couple appears to be ending their marriage of more than 30 years.

The complaint for divorce, quietly entered in Alaska Superior Court on Friday, cryptically bears only the initials of the two parties: SLP for Sarah Louise Palin and TMP for Todd Mitchell Palin as well as their matching birth dates.

Additionally, the filing describes the couple in question as having one minor child, a possible reference to the Palins' 11-year-old son, along with four adult children, which also fits the Palin family profile.

Alaska media outlets reacted to the filing by reporting the divorcing parties to be the Palins. The story was first reported by long time Alaska journalist Craig Medred, who publishes an independent news site.

The Palins married in 1988. They are both 55.
