Former New York governor Elliot Spitzer and his wife Silda have called it quits after 26 years, according to People.

Spitzer, 54, resigned from office in 2008 after his publicized prostitution scandal. Despite being disgraced, his wife remained by his side. His "mea culpa" press conference is thought to be an inspiration for the CBS series The Good Wife.

The couple has three children together.
