Despite seeming like the perfect Hollywood comedy couple, after ten years of marriage, welcoming their sons, and working together on different projects, they decided to separate and filed for divorce in 2014.
Both Poehler and Arnett have been tight-lipped about the reasons for their divorce. However, rumors from insider sources indicated that their relationship lost its spark, and they realized they were close friends rather than romantic partners.
