To say Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause's marriage didn't end on good terms would be an understatement. Ever since the This Is Us star filed for divorce in November 2019, the couple's fairytale romance has turned into an IRL soap opera, and — like many other people, including Stause herself, apparently — I never saw this one coming. Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause's relationship timeline began all the way back in 2013, and over the course of six years, the two fell in love, got hitched, and bought their dream house together. But that all changed soon after their second wedding anniversary, and according to Stause, she got the news her marriage was over via text message. (Elite Daily previously reached out to Hartley's rep for a comment on Stause's claim and didn't hear back.)
Like any Hollywood relationship, it's impossible to know what's really happening behind the scenes. After all, Hartley cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their split, which is basically celeb speak for "none of your business." The two have also provided very different accounts of what went down, with Stause claiming she was blindsided and Hartley claiming they'd already been separated for months before he filed. If Season 3 of Selling Sunset (which featured the couple's divorce) left you with more questions than answers, then maybe this review of their six-year romance will help.
