Another Married at First Sight couple has called it quits.

Lillian Vilchez and Tom Wilson have decided to file for divorce after 14 months of marriage, ET has learned. A source close to the couple told ET that "Lily didn't want the divorce. It was instigated and pushed through by Tom. He was done fighting to make it work but she didn't want to give up on it." The couple is already living separately.

Vilchez and Wilson also announced their separation via social media on Wednesday, sharing heartfelt messages about how they will remain close friends.

"After much thought and reflection, and after being married for over a year we have decided to file for divorce," Vilchez wrote on Instagram. "This was not an easy decision for either of us because we do love each other very much but sometimes God has other plans. This is the route we have decided to take and all we request is you respect our privacy in this delicate matter; divorce is never easy for anyone, especially not such a public one. However, we are best friends and we will always be there for each other even if we are not married and continue growing that relationship just without a piece of paper binding us together."

"We appreciate all the love and support you all have showed us during our marriage and hope you continue to support us during this difficult time," she continued, adding, @tomyachts Still love you though!"

The couple met on the fourth season of the Lifetime reality dating show. The series follows couples who meet for the first time at the altar on their wedding day.
