Sad news for people who believe in that little thing called true love: Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel have decided to split after 10 years of marriage.

The couple you honestly thought would last forever until the end of time ad infinitum et ultra confirmed the news to People magazine.

“Idina Menzel and Taye Diggs have jointly decided to separate at this time,” their reps said in a joint statement. “Their primary focus and concern is for their son. We ask that you respect their privacy during this time.”

Fans of the couple are familiar with their story. The two met on the set of Rent, where they were both original cast members in the mid-‘90s. They married in 2003, had a son, Walker, in 2009, and made this adorable video while waiting in an airport terminal. 

Taye has gone on to make your ovaries overheat in How Stella Got Her Groove Back before transitioning to television, while Idina made a big splash as the original Elphaba in Wicked, for which she won a Tony Award.
