Gov. Peter Shumlin announced Wednesday he is now divorced. The Vermont governor and his wife, Deb, have been separated for several years, but in a statement issued Wednesday morning said the divorce was finalized last month in Windham County Family Court.

The couple issued the following statement: "Even though divorce is a sad occasion, Deb and I will be forever blessed by many extraordinary years together and two remarkable daughters. No parents could ask for a greater gift than Olivia and Becca, and Deb and I are grateful that we remain friends and will continue to share our strong family. We make this statement in light of my public office, but Deb and I will have no further comment on this private issue."
