Here’s what Newsweek reported:
Rep. Lauren Boebert from Colorado announced on Tuesday that she has filed for divorce from her husband of 18 years Jayson Boebert, saying that the decision was made “much more difficult” by the fact that she’s always been faithful and believes “strongly” in marriage.
Boebert filed for separation from her husband on April 25, The Colorado Sun first reported. In a statement to the newspaper on Tuesday, the Republican congresswoman confirmed the report, saying: “It is with a heavy weight on my heart that I have filed for divorce from my husband.”
She added: “I am grateful for our years of marriage together and for our beautiful children, all of whom deserve privacy and love as we work through this process.”

Boebert’s husband Jayson was reportedly caught off guard by the divorce.
The New York Post had these details to add:
Rep. Lauren Boebert’s husband was apparently caught off guard by her decision to file for divorce last month, court documents reveal – and was so irate that he reportedly set his dogs on the process server.
Boebert (R-CO), 36, announced on Tuesday that she was divorcing her husband of 18 years, Jayson, due to “irreconcilable differences.”
In an affidavit obtained by The Daily Beast this week, a process server claimed that Jayson became “extremely angry” when he realized he was being served with Dissolution of Marriage papers after the official filing on April 25.
“He started yelling and using profanities, and told me that I was trespassing, and that he was calling the Sheriff’s Office. I told him I was leaving the documents on the chair outside of the door, he closed the door then let the dogs out,” the server wrote.
Rep. Boebert however rebuked all claims that Jayson sent dogs after the process server:
I have always spoken highly of my marriage. I believe in marriage. I believe in the power our words hold.
Jayson, a man I spent half of my life with, did not sign up to be in the public limelight, and he certainly did not agree to be falsely accused of things he didn't do.
