Even if they said "I do," forever isn't guaranteed. A few Love Is Blind divorces have rocked the series, proving that the atypical reality show experiment isn't necessarily successful for everyone. 

Sure, we have shining stars like Lauren and Cameron, and the latest fan-favorite couple, Brett and Tiffany. But life post-pods was a bit more challenging for some pairs than others. 

There are plenty of Love Is Blind couples who are still together, but hearts broke when the unions below deteriorated. 

'Love Is Blind' divorces: who split up after the show?

Breakups abound in the pods—and post-pods. In the most recent season of the show, Paul and Micah ultimately went their separate ways...on their wedding day. Bartise Bowden from season 3, who now shares a newborn with Olivia Gross, said "I do not" at the altar, sending Nancy Rodriguez into heartbreak.

These couples below went through the wedding and married life—yes, Love Is Blind contestants get legally married on the show—but ultimately decided to call it quits. Couples from seasons 1, 3 and 4 are married today, but all the unions from season 2 have gone kaput. Consider it the sophomore slump.

Although they appeared happy, fans got suspicious about Jarrette and Iyanna particularly during After the Altar season 2. They did have a strong connection in the pods, but his late nights and excessive partying definitely deterred her once the two were out in the real world. Iyanna had become so frustrated that she actually temporarily moved out, but attended Natalie's birthday gathering with the rest of the season 2 cast on somewhat strained terms with her husband. 

When After the Altar came to a close for viewers, the couple decided to reveal that they decided to go their separate ways: "While we have love for each other, our lives are going in different directions, and that's OK," Iyanna wrote. "Coming to this decision was far from easy and we will always wish each other the absolute best."

2. Danielle Ruhl and Nick Thompson (season two)

Again, just following After the Altar season 2, Danielle and Nick revealed that they had broken up, and truthfully, it was the split no one saw coming. They felt like our next Lauren and Cameron, but there was evidently quite a lot we didn't see transpire between them. 

Although the public wasn't given a concrete reason as to why the pair decided to call it quits, they both posted a few updates for their social media followers, stating that they're grateful for the experience but having a difficult time handling the breakup, Danielle in particular. Though her initial statement on Instagram is no longer available, she released a series of Instagram stories in 2022 confronting those who criticized her appearance post-split. 

"It’s funny when people are like, 'How are you so happy?'," she wrote. "Would you rather have me post an Instagram Live of me crying for eight hours straight, because I can do that if you want [me] to! That's my reality."

For Nick's part, he wrote: "I'm grateful for this experience, the learnings that came, and those yet to come," he wrote. "I am heartbroken my marriage ended. I know in my heart that I did the best I could and gave it everything I had. I'm optimistic for the future."
