Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green split

While the general reaction to the Jen-Ben divorce was surprise and shock, not too many people on social-media seem to be having the same reaction to the Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green separation.

The split was reported earlier today, with sources telling PEOPLE that the two stars are calling it quits after five years of marriage. It’s true that the couple have only been married for five-years but pair have been together for 11 years now. The two shared a very-long courtship before tying the knot in the end.

“Megan and Brian have decided to separate,” a source close to the couple told PEOPLE earlier today. “They will always love each other very much and are devoted to their kids. Anything could happen in the future, but for now they’ve decided it’s best to take some time apart.”

Rumors that the two were in trouble started after it was reported that the duo were no longer attending events together. It was during this time that more reports noticed that they weren’t photographed together at all during their time away from sets. Apparently Green and Fox had been living separate lives for several months now, all leading up to the split, which Reps for Fox and Green have not confirmed at this time.

Fox and Green have two sons together, Noah Shannon is 2 and the youngest Bodhi Ransom is now 18 months. Green is also a gather Kassius, who is 13, from his previous relationship with Vanessa Marcil.

At 29 (Fox) and 42 (Green) the duo did have an age-gap to work through. The two tied the knot Hawaii in 2010. Green and Fox met in 2004 after Green briefly appeared on the show Hope & Faith.

Green originally proposed back in November 2006, it was then called off in February 2009. It wasn’t long before Green and Fox were engaged again in June 2010, then married each other just 24 days later.

Speaking in Men’s Health Fox talked about troubled relationships. “You can’t live in a fantasyland and think that everything’s going to be perfect all the time,” she said. “You will go through phases where you’re just not getting along. You’re not communicating well. That’s going to happen, and it’s going to feel impossible to you sometimes. It might not even make sense to you sometimes.”
