Farber, 38, and Slater, 33, ended their four years of marriage. A source confirmed to US Weekly, “They’ve been apart for many months now. They both have not been wearing their wedding rings and are each leading a single life.”
The source added that it was a “tough decision” for the two of them but they’re “figuring out” what it’s like to live apart. The insider added, “It’s been a difficult time since they really care about each other and have been together for so long.” However, the two haven’t filed for divorce yet but they’re “leaning on friends for support” and will “continue to work together as professional dancers” just like when they first split in 2014. The source assured, “They’re pros and won’t let their personal life get in the way of DWTS.”
The Dancing With the Stars pros first sparked breakup rumors earlier this year after they haven’t posted about each other on their pages. Just recently, Slater and her parents went to Italy without her husband and also attended Brandon Armstrong’s wedding alone. They didn’t greet each other on their fourth wedding anniversary in March, too.
In November 2021, Slater shared to the outlet about balancing their personal and professional relationship. She said, “I think we do a really good job of separating our work life from our home life, which is crazy because we literally [do] everything together. So, it is hard to separate it. For some reason, we do a really good job with that. It’s just, like, it doesn’t get to us in our personal life.”
They were first romantically linked in 2011 and dated for three years before breaking up in 2014. That time, she told Glamour, “I don’t think we’re supposed to finish together. I think there are other people that might make us both individually happy, but I’m always going to be his best friend. It has just happened in the way we have gone from a beautiful three-year relationship, which I love and cherish, to best friends.”
The two got back together in 2016 and tied the knot two years later.
Slater told the outlet that time, “We are on top of the world right now. It was the most amazing day. It was absolutely amazing. Nothing went wrong. It was brilliant. It was incredible. I kept thinking, ‘This isn’t normal. This isn’t normal. This should not be happening.’ It went so well and it was a party from the moment we got upstairs to the reception till really late.”
