After four years of marriage, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton have divorced. As evidenced by their inclusion on our list of couples whose divorce would shatter our faith in love, we are truly devastated by this development.
Perhaps what's most truly upsetting is how often this country couple seemed perfect for each other. Here are nine times Miranda and Blake talked about love and divorce that had us convinced they could last.
1. When Miranda said that her and Blake tell it like it is.
"We feel like we're very honest with who we are and our relationship," she told 60 Minutes last November. "We've kinda told the good, the bad, the ugly as our relationship has progressed from the beginning till now. And people dig anyway and they make up lies, so I feel like, we don't really hold back, because if you hold back they're going to dig anyway so might as well just tell it."
2. When Miranda said that "divorce is not an option."
"Like I always say, my mom said to my dad, 'Divorce is not an option,'" Miranda told Country Weekly in 2013. "So, we really love each other and have a real marriage outside of all of this."
