Tullian Tchividjian Files for Divorce

According to Christianity Today:

Billy Graham and Tullian Tchividjian

Tullian Tchividjian, Billy Graham’s grandson, filed for divorce on Thursday in Broward County, Florida. Tchividjian resigned as senior pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale earlier this summer after admitting an extramarital affair. He has since lost his ministerial credentials.

There was little public information available about the divorce filing. Under Florida law, one party must establish that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” in order for the union to be dissolved. Tullian and his wife, Kim, married in 1994 and have three children.

Tchividjian, who is the petitioner in the case, did not respond to a request for comment. Today [Aug. 26], author-pastor Paul Tripp, a friend and counselor to Tchividjian, said in a statement that for six months much effort was made in “hope of healing the marriage,” but he said it was too “deeply broken.”
