Governor Robert Bentley Agrees to Divorce Settlement
According to the governor's office, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley and first lady Dianne Bentley have agreed to a divorce settlement, ending their 50-year marriage. The settlement was filed Monday, just four weeks after the first lady filed for divorce, saying their marriage had suffered an "irretrievable breakdown." The governor said he has asked a judge to unseal the case file so the public and media can see it. A judge sealed the divorce file from public view three days after it was filed at the request of the Bentley's. Dianne Bentley, in her divorce filing, asked for possession of the couple's homes in Tuscaloosa and Fort Morgan, alimony and a division of other assets.
