Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause are parting their ways after two years of marriage. For both, the romance was their second chance at marriage, and they have never been shy to show their best love on social media or at award ceremonies.

On NBC's show This Is Us, Justin Hartley plays heartthrob Kevin Pearson; however, in real life, he only had his eyes on one woman: his wife, Chrishell Hartley. What happened to the couple to call it quits after such an idyllic relationship?

Justin Hartley & Chrishell Stause's split

Justin Hartley's news about the split from his wife, Chrishell Stause, has admittedly shaken the universe. This Is Us star has filed for divorce from his sweetheart after a two-year marriage.

According to the court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Justin Hartley cited "irreconcilable differences" as the main reason for his separation from his wife. The 42-year-old listed the date of split as July 8, 2019, though the couple attended the Emmy Awards side-by-side this September.

According to a source close to the couple, the spouses "have been having trouble for a while."

In many ways, they're somewhat fundamentally incompatible. Chrishell is really ready to just settle down and be a wife and stay-at-home mom and was hoping to start a family relatively soon. Justin wants that but also doesn't think it has to happen in the near future and is at a point in his career where he wants to really be able to explore all the options that are coming his way.

Reps for Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause have yet to comment on the reported news.
