The rumors are true: Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, who have been married for 8 years, are officially separating. Channing Tatum has taken to social media to clear up all the rumors surrounding his relationship, and all he proved to us is that love is dead.

Channing and Jenna met in 2006 on the set of Step Up, and soon after they started dating. The fact that we actually got to watch the pair fall in love might be why we’re so invested in the relationship and why, subsequently, we’re all completely devastated by the news. It’s like watching two of your best friends break up.

Maybe it’s something we need to start getting used to, though. After all, all of our favorite celebrity couples seem to be breaking up. First Dev Patel and Freida Pinto, then Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, then Anna Faris and Chris Pratt — the list goes on and on.

At least some people can still find humor in such a dire situation.

RIP, romance. You were fun while you lasted. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
