First Lady Dianne Bentley is asking for a divorce. She filed court documents Friday morning about half an hour before making an appearance with her husband, Governor Robert Bentley.
The documents were filed at 9:24 a.m.. According to the filings, “The Plaintiff states there is such a complete incompatibility of temperament that the parties can no longer live together. There exists a conflict of personalities which destroys the legitimate aims of matrimony and all possibilities of reconciliation are futile.
Plaintiff further avers that their marriage has suffered an irretrievable breakdown and that further attempts at reconciliation are impractical and not in the best interests of the parties.”
The Bentleys married July 24, 1965. According to the documents, they separated in January 2015.
Bentley was re-elected to his second term November 2014.
