Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) has filed for divorce from her husband, Jayson, the congresswoman announced Tuesday.
The Boeberts have been married for nearly two decades.
She said in a statement: “It is with a heavy weight on my heart that I have filed for divorce from my husband.
“I am grateful for our years of marriage together and for our beautiful children, all of whom deserve privacy and love as we work through this process.
“I’ve always been faithful in my marriage, and I believe strongly in marriage, which makes this announcement that much more difficult.
“This is truly about irreconcilable differences.
“I do not intend to discuss this matter any further in public out of respect for our children, and will continue to work hard to represent the people of Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District.”
The divorce petition was filed on May 11 in Mesa County court.
In her book, “My American Life,” Boebert wrote:
“Four months after we met, Jayson and I went off to get married.
“For any ‘Karen’ who may be reading this, Jayson and I broke no Colorado laws with our relationship, despite what you might be thinking.”
“This was no shotgun wedding.”
“McDonald’s offered me a shift manager position that paid more than $40,000 a year, and I was just a teenager.
“The choice between a high school geography class and a high-paying job, one that would put food on the table, was an easy one.
“I dropped out of high school and took the job.”

In court documents, a process server said Jayson was not happy when he served him with the divorce papers.
“I tried to hand him the documents but he did not take them,” the server wrote.
“He started yelling and using profanities and told me that I was trespassing.”
