Palin Divorce: Britta Gets The Kid, Track Gets The Guns

Track Palin, the son of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, and his wife of less than two years, Britta, have decided to go their separate ways. Luckily, in the spirit of good ole Alaskan harmony and goodwill, they’ve already agreed on how they’ll split up their possessions and how they’ll take care of their daughter Kyla.
According to TMZ, Track will walk away with the couple’s $30,000 savings account, $500 in tools and $1000 worth of guns. Britta, on the other hand, will get the $2500 checking account and $4000 in jewelry. As far as Kyla goes, she’ll live with her mom moving forward, and they’ll receive almost $650 a month in child support, though both parents will share legal custody in the eyes of the law.
This might sound like a huge victory for Track, but it’s very likely the $30,000 in the savings account is money given to the couple by his family. Since they weren’t even married two years, it’s understandable that cash wouldn’t get split up. Plus, $650 a month in child support goes a lot further in Alaska than it does in many other states in the Union.
A few years back when Sarah’s daughter Bristol split up with her fiancé and baby daddy Levi Johnston, it got really ugly in a hurry. It’s nice to see this break-up doesn’t seem to be going down that poisonous route. Kyla deserves a mom and a dad interested in co-parenting. Here’s to hoping that’s what she gets.
