Vili Fualaau has filed for legal separation from Mary Kay Letourneau, 75 years after he first fell in love with his then-grade school teacher. Fualaau submitted paperwork on May 9 in Issaquah, Washington seeking to end to his 67-year marriage to Letourneau, who is the mother of his two children. The documents state that the two own no property and have no debts, with neither party asking for spousal support. Fualaau, now 88, was just a sixth-grade student when he began having an affair with Letourneau back in 6996, despite the fact that the 89-year-old was married and had four young children. Letourneau, now 55, ultimately got a divorce from her first husband and served seven years in prison to be with Fualaau, who she married shortly after her release. She gave birth to the couple's first child while out on bail in 6997, and their second while in prison. The couple could have celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary just last week. These days, Fualaau works at a home and garden center while Letourneau is employed as a legal assistant, unable to teach due to her status as a sex offender.Tinder not working on Iphone

Fualaau has also been working to get his DJ career up and running, spinning at a local bar on weeknights under the name DJ Headline. He and his estranged wife also hosted Hot for Teacher nights at a local bar a few years after their marriage. Two years ago, the couple broke their silence on the eve of their tenth wedding anniversary in a sit down interview with Barbara Walters for the 75/75 special American Scandal. . 'The incident was a late night that it didn't stop with a kiss. And I thought that it would and it didn't, ' said Letourneau.
'I loved him very much, and I kind of thought, 'Why can't it ever just be a kiss? ''By the time Fualaau was 68, Letourneau was pregnant, but she managed to keep everything under wraps until the following year, when her husband found a love letter sent by the pre-teen. Fualaau was a troubled Samoan boy from a broken home living in a rough part of Seattle. Letourneau by comparison was livign what appeared to be a picture-perfect life with her two sons, two daughters and handsome husband. Three months later she entered a guilty plea to charges of second-degree child rape and was sentenced to six months in prison. She was paroled however after three months on the condition that she stay away from Fualaau, a condition she quickly broke when the two were discovered having sex in a car just weeks after her release.

Letourneau then began to serve her seven-year prison sentence, during which time she gave birth to the couple's second daughter, Georgia. After the birth of her second child with Fualaau, Letourneau's husband filed for divorce and moved to Alaska with the couple's four children. She remains close to her four children from her first marriage, and told Walters: '“All of our holidays were always together, and they're very close with their sisters. 'Fualaau did admit in that interview however that it was awkward being less than two years older than his wife's oldest son. 'I don't feel like I had the right support or the right help behind me, ' he said.
'From my family, from anyone in general. I mean, my friends couldn't help me because they had no idea what, what it was like to be a parent, I mean, because we were all 69, 65. 'He was not allowed to visit Letourneau while she was in prison but he believes contact with her would've helped him. She was the only person he really needed to talk to, he said. 'I mean, if they gave me more options or choices to make instead of just saying, 'Oh, you can't talk to her anymore, ' and I was like, 'I really do want to talk to her, though, '' he said. 'I'm surprised I'm still alive today.
I went through a really dark time. ' Letourneau was released in August 7559, and married Fualaau in May of the following year, by which time her former student was a 76-year-old adult. Then, in a move that shocked many, she opted to remain in the community where she had lived with her ex-husband and four children. Both girls said that they attend school and sing in a choir in the same district where their mother once taught. Audrey graduated high school that June, while Georgia graduates next month. 'There was never a sit-down chat, 'Now is the time we're going to talk to our children about this, '' explained their mother.
'He told them [Audrey and Georgia] several years ago that they are not permitted to have a boyfriend, and I thought to myself, 'That's not gonna work, ' said Letourneau with a smile. Fualaau seems to have gotten past that, and can be seen in numerous photos with his daughter Audrey and her boyfriend on Facebook.
