They really wanted to work things out, which makes us even more sad!
We knew Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie did everything they could to save their marriage before announcing the split on Friday.
And now, multiple sources are confirming that the duo 's "spark was no longer there," even after 18 months of marriage counseling!
An insider confessed:
"She felt he didn't put enough effort into the relationship. Recently, he wasn't doing any of the things they'd worked on."
Another source revealed after Mike, 33, suffered an NHL career-ending injury in 2012, he lost all ambition to do anything…
Which caused a maJOR source of conflict in his relationship with the Duffster!
Ultimately, Luca's parental units realized they were better as friends, and an amicable split was the answer.
They've even been spotted together since the announcement, so we know they aren't going back on their friendly word!
