Does Tell-All Book Have Sarah and Todd Palin Set to Divorce?

Are Sarah Palin and her husband Todd the next celebrity couple set to divorce? Several sources reported that the two are preparing to go their separate ways, but we do not know anything for sure yet. The cause of their marital tensions is reportedly two things – a new tell-all book, and Sarah’s role in the spotlight since the 2008 Presidential Campaign.

The book, “The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin,” came out in late September. Its author, Joe McGinniss, makes bold claims about affairs and drug usage on her part. The negative press surrounding the book has appeared to influence any plans Sarah might have been harboring for the election next year, as her advisors have warned against running for president, calling it “political suicide” at this point.

The sources also report that Todd was never a big fan of the media attention that Sarah’s turn as vice presidential candidate brought about in 2007 and 2008. The severe scrutiny that the family has lived under has reportedly taken its toll on Todd. The McGinniss book has upset Todd, who described the author as a “stalker” who has a “creepy obsession” with Sarah.

The divorce rumors may turn out to be false, but if they turn out true, it certainly will not be the first time a couple split under the spotlight. With shows like the “Real Housewives” series, we regularly see couples divorce after the show seems to magnify any problems that the couple is having. Is this kind of scrutiny the ultimate test to determine how strong a relationship is? Or are the shows and media attention themselves the things to blame?
