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?
