  • Greene did not attend votes in Washington on Wednesday before the judgement was issued on Thursday.

Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has finalized her divorce with her now ex-husband, Perry Greene.

Judge Bryan Thomas Johnson, a superior court Judge in Floyd County, Georgia, issued a final judgement and decree of divorce on Thursday, documents show.

"It is considered, ordered, and decreed by the court that the marriage contract heretofore entered into between the parties to this case, from and after this date, be and is set aside and dissolved as fully and effectually as if no contract had ever been made or entered into," the document stated.

Perry Greene first filed for divorce in September, stating that the couples' marriage had been "irretrievably broken." The couple moved to finalized their divorce settlement earlier this month.

It was the couples' second time filing for divorce: as The Atlantic reported in December, Taylor Greene previously filed for divorce in July 2012 after alleged affairs she had with two men who worked at the Crossfit gym where she trained. The couple later reconciled.

"Marriage is a wonderful thing and I'm a firm believer in it," the congresswoman said in a statement after the September filing. "Our society is formed by a husband and wife creating a family to nurture and protect. Together, Perry and I formed our family and raised three great kids. He gave me the best job title you can ever earn: Mom. I'll always be grateful for how great of a dad he is to our children."

Perry Greene told Insider in September the congresswoman was his "best friend for the last 29 years" and an "amazing mom."

"Our family is our most important thing we have done," he said. "As we go on different paths we will continue to focus on our three incredible kids and their future endeavors and our friendship."

The far-right congresswoman was apparently absent from a House session held on Wednesday, the day before the divorce was finalized. Roll call vote records show that she voted by proxy on a series of items taken up by legislators on Wednesday evening, despite previously introducing a bill to ban the procedure.

She was also not spotted at an address to a Joint Session of Congress on Wednesday evening by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who she recently dubbed a "shadow president."

Greene's office did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
