OK. We get that breakups are a normal part of life, but why must they happen to couples we love so much?

It…. it hurts.

So far this year we’ve too many of our beloved celebrity couples call it quits, and we’re still devastated. So devastated, we felt it necessary to take a look back over the last four-ish months of heartbreak.

We apologise in advance.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum were, for a time, the textbook definition of 'couple goals'.

They first met onset of the 2006 film Step Up and began dating shortly after, before tying the knot in 2009.

But after nearly nine years of marriage, earlier this month they 'lovingly chose to separate as a couple'.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan were meant to be #couplegoals, but they’ve just broken up. So are couple goals bullsh*t?

Sarah and Telv. Where do we even begin?

From the moment we laid eyes on them in the latest season of Channel 7's Married at First Sight, we thought this had to be the beginning of something special. And for a while, it looked like it was heading in that direction.

Until it wasn't. The couple appeared to be holding it together while the show was still on air, despite rumours that they had, in fact, already called it quits.

It wasn't until the final few episodes of the show that their split was confirmed.
