Topics: Karl Rove, War Room,

Karl Rove’s marriage to his wife, Darby, lasted almost 24 years. The pair wed in January 1986 and were granted a divorce last week.

In a statement announcing the divorce, spokeswoman Dana Perino said, “The couple came to the decision mutually and amicably, and they maintain a close relationship and a strong friendship. There will be no further comment, and the family requests that its privacy be respected.”

Additionally, Politico quotes an unnamed “family friend” as saying, “They did spend Christmas together with their son, and they plan to spend time together in the future. They maintain a strong friendship and they both feel that that friendship is a source of comfort and inspiration for their friends and family.”
