Marjorie Taylor Greene's husband has filed for divorce after 27 years of marriage.

According to the divorce petition filed in the Georgia Superior Court of Floyd County, Perry Greene, who wed the 48-year-old politician in August of 1995, claimed his marriage with her was "irretrievably broken" and that the couple had already separated.

The petition also stated that Perry Greene - who shares three children with the controversial lawmaker - asked for an equitable division of assets and debt and that all future filings in the case be sealed to protect the couple’s privacy.

"The Court should allow all filings to be made under seal in this case because the parties' significant privacy interest in sealing the records outweighs the public’s minuscule interest in access to said records," the motion read.

In a statement shared with People, the Georgia representative asked for privacy as she and Perry navigate their divorce in the next few months.

"Marriage is a wonderful thing and I'm a firm believer in it," she said. "Our society is formed by a husband and wife creating a family to nurture and protect. Together, Perry and I formed our family and raised three great kids."

"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," she added.

Similarly, Perry also shared a statement with the outlet about his divorce and noted having a family with the politician is the "most important thing we have done".

"Marjorie has been my best friend for the last 29 years and she has been an amazing mom!" he said. "As we go on different paths we will continue to focus on our 3 incredible kids and their future endeavors and our friendship."

In addition to this, Perry has also asked the court to seal existing and future filings in the divorce case to protect the family's privacy.

It has not been stated if Marjorie - who took Perry's last name at the age of 21 - will continue to be known as representative Greene when the divorce is finalized.

Randy Kessler, a prominent Atlanta-based divorce lawyer, revealed to People that to get a divorce case barred from outsiders in Georgia, there must first be a hearing on the request.

"If the parties can reach an agreement on their own," he said, per the outlet, "a final divorce can be granted as quickly as 31 days after the date on which she was served."

In meantime, Greene, who represents the 14th Congressional District in the state, is up for re-election this November.
