Nevada governor, first lady separating
In a statement released Friday, Dec. 15, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval said he and wife, Kathleen, are separating.
“After 27 years of marriage, Kathleen and I have decided to separate and plan to divorce. It’s no secret that the demands of public life are hard on a marriage and ours has been affected in a way neither of us had envisioned or expected,” he said in a statement. “We both remain committed to our three children and we ask that our privacy, and the privacy of all of our family members, be respected during this difficult time.”
The Sandovals have two adult children, James and Maddy, and a teenager, Marisa.
The Sandovals were married in October 1990.
