"For her part, Olivia penned a reflection on her and Ethan's time together," E News reported.
"Ethan and I have decided to go our separate ways," she wrote on her Instagram. "I have ambivalent memories of us being 18 years old, innocently dreaming of forever - but the partner you choose is a reflection of the world you want to live in, and at 18 I didn't know who I was or what kind of life I wanted to create for myself."

"Buzz about their possible breakup started brewing in early 2023 when some followers noticed the two had stopped posting photos of each other on Instagram," the List reported.
"Ethan's last post of Olivia appeared on his feed in January 2023, while Olivia's last mention of her husband was in late 2022. The rumors intensified in June 2023 when a family member allegedly came forward, claiming that Ethan and Olivia were planning to go their separate ways," it noted.
The rumors are now true, with the finale making it official for the longtime audience.
The breakup has led to much noise on social media over the details, but the main fact is certain, revealing that the lead couple is no longer planning to stick together.
The rumors show that the concern has been in the works for some time, but the producers may have pushed back on confirming until the final episode to keep fans glued to the drama until the end of the fifth season.
