FRANKFORT – Senate President David Williams and his wife, Robyn Williams, will be filing for divorce.
Both released a statement Monday about their marriage without elaboration. It was released in an email by Williams’ spokeswoman, Lourdes Baez-Schrader.
Williams said in a statement, “Robyn has decided to take her life in a different direction. I greatly admire her and appreciate the time we have spent together. I wish her only the best in her future endeavors.”
Robyn Williams said in her statement, “Senator Williams and I have filed papers to terminate our marriage. There are always pressures on relationships, and the rough-and-tumble pressures of the full time political world, compounded by the immense pressures of a multi-year gubernatorial campaign, brought unique and incessant pressure on our relationship.
“We have, for the sake of ourselves and our families, decided to part ways amicably. I have the greatest respect for David as a man, a husband, a father and a political leader, and I always will.
“As this current chapter in our lives comes to an end, it is with the fondest reassurance that we begin a new chapter marked mutually by a deep and close friendship. We ask all to respect our privacy and that of our children.”
