‘The Notebook’ Author Nicholas Sparks and Wife of 25 Years Split

The Notebook author and voice of true, everlasting love Nicholas Sparks has separated from his wife of 25 years.

The 49-year-old novelist announced the split to People.com, saying, “Cathy and I have separated… This is, of course, not a decision we’ve made lightly. We remain close friends with deep respect for each other and love for our children. For our children’s sake, we regard this as a private matter.”

The couple married in 1989 and has three sons and twin daughters ranging in age from 12 to 23.

Many of Sparks’ other novels, including A Walk to Remember and Dear John, have also been adapted into movies.

We’re sorry to hear that the man responsible for so many romance novels is ending his own real-life romance novel…maybe he should try a rain kiss?

Let’s reflect on happier times…we’d love to hear what some of your favorite Nicholas Sparks tales are in the comments below.
