Shellie Zimmerman, Wife Of George, May File For Divorce

George Zimmerman may have won his freedom during the murder trial of Trayvon Martin, but he might be losing his wife, Shellie, who told ABC News divorce is something she’s considering.

Shellie, 26, told Good Morning America Thursday she wants to have children some day, but she isn’t sure if it will be with George, who was acquitted of all charges earlier this month.

"I can't tell you how many nights I've gone to bed or laid awake at night saying, 'I wish to God that these circumstances had been different,'” she said.

According to The Daily Mail:

Dressed in the same black and white outfit she wore this morning to her sentencing, Shellie spoke to Miss O’Connor about her strained relationship with her spouse, telling the journalist that the February 2012 shooting, the subsequent trial and the backlash that followed Zimmerman’s not guilty verdict put 'great stress' on their marriage.

The couple has been forced to move several times, and Shellie Zimmerman allegedly has been receiving threats.

“They are constantly living under fear of being attacked,” O’Connor said of the Zimmermans.

Zimmerman herself pleaded guilty to perjury Wednesday after lying to a judge about the couple’s finances. She was sentenced to 100 hours of community service and was forced to write a letter of apology for her transgression.

“By lying under oath, I let my God down, I let your Honor and the court down, I let my family and friends down, and, most of all, I let myself down,” she wrote in the letter, according to The Daily Mail. “In the future, no matter what the consequences, I will tell the truth because in the end all you have is your integrity. I promise, your Honor, to work hard to restore mine before the eyes of my God and the world.”
