Hall have filed for divorce," their reps tell CNN in a joint statement.Carpenter, 31, wed Hall, 39, on December 31, 2008, and stood by him as he battled Hodgkin's lymphoma this year.
It does happen, but perhaps a little less on TV shows than on movie sets.
But splitting up and getting a divorce all the while continuing to work together is pretty much unheard of. There was no negativity between Michael and Jennifer. Some unreliable rumors purported that Michael had a brief affair with Julia Stiles, who was on the show for one season.
"The triumph of a man, to have gone through something like that and not even give the crew any suspicions that he was in any sort of need, it's impressive," she told the New York Times in September.
Access Hollywood reports that Carpenter attended Sunday night's season 5 finale party alone and often talked about their troubles on the set of the hit Showtime series.
They began dating in 2007 and very quietly eloped on New Year’s Eve 2008, appearing at the Golden Globes in January 2009 for the first time as a married couple. Hall announced that he had been diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma and was undergoing treatment.
He looked gaunt at the Golden Globes ceremony when he accepted his award for his role as Dexter.Nobody slandering the other, no hostility, but for all appearances simply a transition back into friendship. Julia has denied those allegations and there doesn’t seem to be any solid evidence for this.It would, of course, be a sound reason for a break-up, but it would generate a lot more resentment and hurt between the exes than there has evidently been.He allegedly changed his mind and no longer wanted children.But if Jennifer still wanted to be a mother one day, then her marriage was essentially over, even if the love was not.He had been married once before to actress Amy Spanger, whom he also co-starred with. Jennifer has been linked to folk singer Seth Avett for a little while now.
