'I've had it': Elizabeth and John Edwards legally separate

(Los Angeles Times) - Elizabeth Edwards has had just about enough, thank you -- she and husband John Edwards, the former senator, one-time vice presidential candidate and two-time (and two-timing) presidential hopeful, have legally separated after 32 years of marriage and are living in different homes.

According to Elizabeth's sister Nancy Anania, speaking to People, "She said, 'I've had it. I can't do this. I want my life back.' " Elizabeth is staying in the couple's Chapel Hill, N.C., mansion and John is 160 miles away at their beach house.

"It is an extraordinarily sad moment, but I love my children more than anything and still care deeply about Elizabeth," John Edwards said today in a statement.
