Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter file for a surprise divorce

This was one marriage that people expected to work out, for some reason, but after not even two years of wedded life, Dexter stars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter have decided to call it quits.  Apparently they have been separated for quite some time, but kept the news under wraps until yesterday.

Word has it that this will not affect their work on Dexter, as the show has been renewed for a sixth season as normal, and there is no word on why they decided to divorce – it has only been mentioned that the split was amicable.  This announcement is surprising because when Michael went through his battle with cancer, it seemed like he and Jennifer were as strong as could be and nothing would separate them!  Guess things change.
