Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson have officially confirmed that they have decided to end their two-year-old marriage.

A joint statement released by the couple said, After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we've decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn't expected, it's certainly appreciated.”

There were rumours that the Hollywood star couple's marriage had hit rough seas in October.

The two have been experiencing marriage problems due to their heavy schedules, according to an earlier New York Daily News report. The pair hardly ever see each other causing tension in their relationship.

They are working through relationship troubles caused primarily by work schedules that keep them apart, a source is quoted as saying. Nothing is going to change unless Scarlett and Ryan can learn to compromise and they won’t.

Reports about trouble in paradise surfaced earlier in May also. Reasons cited were the same as now.

Nothing is going to change unless Scarlett and Ryan can learn to compromise and they won’t, an insider said.Scarlett won’t cancel anything she has coming up or wants to go to, and neither will Ryan.

Adding fuel to the fire is the non-appearance of Ryan Reynolds when his wife hosted The Saturday Night Live show recently. Chicagonow.com had earlier reported that the two are reportedly bickering about everything right from time schedules to Ryan’s ex-girlfriend Alanis Morissette.
