(Newser) – Karl Rove and his wife, Darby, are officially parting ways, reports Politico: the couple “were granted a divorce last week” in Texas, said spokeswoman Dana Perino. Married since 1986, they “came to the decision mutually and amicably, and they maintain a close relationship and a strong friendship,” Perino notes. The pair spent Christmas “together with their son, and they plan to spend time together in the future,” says a friend.
