Former Missouri Republican Gov. Eric Greitens and his wife Sheena Greitens are divorcing.

The couple announced Saturday that they have decided to end their marriage and co-parent their two sons.

The divorce comes nearly two years after Greitens resigned amid accusations that he took a compromising photo of a woman without her consent during a 2015 extramarital affair.

Greitens was charged with invasion of privacy in connection with that allegation and with a separate felony related to fund-raising. Both charges were dropped. Greitens resigned in June 2018.

Sheena Greitens is an assistant professor in political science at the University of Missouri.
