“When you know, you know, and we knew right away,” said Joe Manganiello once about Sofía Vergara. These words are now resonating with pain in our hearts as the couple just announced their imminent divorce after nearly 8 years of marriage. Their final farewell broke many people’s hearts and provided some insight into what led to the end of their union.

Joe and Sofía always seemed like ultimate soulmates.

Manganiello and Vergara have been together since 2014. He was smitten with her long before they actually met, so he didn’t take long to propose. The couple tied the knot in November 2015 and seemed absolutely blissful throughout their entire marriage. As we already mentioned, Joe said they “knew right away”.

Joe once said about their union: “It’s such an easy relationship — easy in all the right ways. Looking back on the relationships I had before this, I think the universe was giving me some tough practice, so I’d get this right.” But we know that no relationship is perfect and seemed like Sofía and Joe couldn’t work through some hurdles they’d encountered along the way.

Why they decided to separate.

The couple’s official statement regarding their split was pretty standard: “We have made the difficult decision to divorce. As two people that love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.” But close sources shed more information on what was going on behind the scenes.

Those who were close to Sofía and Joe noted that while they had a lot of love and passion for each other, they liked different things. Manganiello is always about having fun, playing video games, reading comic books, while Vergara is more into the celebrity lifestyle with fancy dinners and trips. Ultimately, their differences created a distance between them, that is now culminating in a divorce.

People online are shocked by the news.

Their divorce took the public by surprise. Manganiello and Vergara always seemed perfect for each other, so no one could see this split coming.

Our hearts go out to Sofía and Joe at this tough time, we truly believe that they will find their soulmates eventually. Meanwhile, let’s remind ourselves that love still exists with one of the most resilient and fun Hollywood couples — Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively! Their relationship never fails to entertain us and fill our hearts with hope that everyone has that one special person reserved for them.
