Well, you can’t say you didn’t see this one coming.

After just two and a half years of marriage, Lost star Doug Hutchison and his wife, Courtney Stodden, 19, have separated, People reports. The controversial couple were wed in 2011 when aspiring country singer Stodden was only 16 years old, creating a 35-year age difference between bride and groom.

“We love each other very much, want for each other’s happiness, and will continue being the best of friends for life,” the couple said. The two will share custody of their dog Dourtney and remain living under the same roof in different bedrooms while Hutchison will continue to co-manage Stodden’s career.
