Sarah Palin’s Son Track Palin Filed For Divorce But Had To Watch A Video On How It Would Ruin His Child

Grandmother Sarah Palin can’t be too pleased about this — at least not publicly given all that political chest-thumping about upholding Christian values. Her oldest little boy, Track Palin, now 23-year-old, is parting ways with his wife of only a year and half, 22-year-old Britta Hanson.

TMZ reports that the parents to 1-year-old daughter, Kyla Grace Palin, who was conceived out of wedlock (since we’re keeping track of this technically “sinful” stuff), jointly filed for divorce. Because the pair lives in Alaska, joint paperwork means that many details have already been settled, including custody, child support, and property distribution.

However, reports indicate that the parents had to watch some parenting footage along with signing those divorce papers. No joke:

Track and Britta had to watch a 48-minute video about the impact of a failed marriage on the child.

No word on what Track, who is an Army reservist who served time in Iraq, procured from such an informational video, nor his soon-to-be ex-wife. But considering that the pair have reportedly already settled any custody disputes and financial issues, I’d say this “failed marriage” is kicking off on the right foot for young Kyla Grace. Comparatively, given that this particular corner of the family has yet to pioneer their own reality show with Kyla as the focal point (unlike somebody’s auntie), I surmise that also bodes well for the tot.

    Do you disagree with their having to watch the video? I don’t think you researched it well, since the video, called “Listen to the Children,” appears to be the same sort of thing that Texas requires parents to watch. It informs parents of the issues that children of divorce face, and offers advice to divorced parents on how to interact with each other and the children in order to reduce stress and strife for the children and to make it as easy as possible for them to resume some sort of normal life.

    I can imagine the squeals of delight from the Mommyish offices when this story broke. Way to revel in others misfortune (especially since the only relevance he has is being the offspring of someone you dislike). I hate to see any marriage fail, especially if there are children involved.

      Agreed. I’m not a Sarah Palin fan, but I only hold her stance on “traditional values” to her alone, not her children. They make their own life decisions, and I’d rather a couple separate than create an unhappy home for their child.

      If Koa was trying to point out hypocrisy, it was a flop.

      Also, this video is standard in a lot of states. As Chickadee said below, Texas also has the requirement and so does the state I live in.
