(Newser) – Alex Rodriguez's wife filed for divorce today, calling her husband an adulterer who "emotionally abandoned his wife and children," but naming no names. "The marriage of the parties is irretrievably broken because of the husband's extramarital affairs and other marital misconduct," claimed Cynthia Rodriguez's petition for dissolution of the marriage, filed this morning in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court.
