According to an announcement made by the pair on Instagram, Tyler Stanaland and Brittany Snow have ended their relationship. After being married in Malibu, California, more than two years ago, the couple has decided to end their marriage and separate.

“After time and consideration, Tyler and I have made the difficult decision to separate,” Brittany Snow wrote on the 14th of September, which Tyler Stanaland echoed in a similar post. “This decision was made with love and mutual respect for one another. We have realized we need to take some time and make sure we are each living our most fulfilling and authentic lives.”

They continued, “We started this journey as best friends and our relationship will continue to be a priority not only for us but for our dog Charlie. We sincerely appreciate your support and ask for privacy as we navigate this new chapter.”

After meeting in what they called “the most millennial way,” which was when Tyler slipped into Brittany’s direct message box on social media, the two started dating for the first time in 2018.

“I sent a direct message with the most embarrassing pickup line,” he recalled. “A dad joke.”

Early in 2019, Tyler proposed to her when they were together in the kitchen of their residence. Brittany Snow jokedly thanked Tyler in the announcement post on social media for “not proposing in this creepy empty restaurant.”

“I’m still pinching myself and thanking my lucky stars for the truest feeling I’ve ever felt,” she had written on Instagram, calling the proposal “the happiest day of my life.”

Meanwhile, Tyler wrote about his engagement, “I don’t know how I got so lucky and I don’t know that I really understood what love is until you. Everything changed when we met.”

On March 14, 2020, just as a statewide pandemic lockdown was about to take effect, Brittany and Tyler exchanged vows. Attendees to the wedding included not just friends and relatives but even the couple’s much-loved dog, Billie.

That summer, Brittany wondered how she and Tyler had said their “I Do’s” right before the “whole world shut down,” sharing that they “had no idea how lucky it would be to get married right before a monumental time in our history.”

“Everything that could have gone wrong, went wrong that day… but it was absolutely and impossibly perfect,” she stated in a July 2020 Instagram post. “I knew on that day, more than ever before, there was no one else I’d rather hold my hand while in the middle of a (life) hurricane.”
