Batsheva Haart and Ben Weinstein end their relationship.

After more than nine years of marriage together, the couple – who play together on Netflix’s My unorthodox life – have decided to go their separate ways, they announced on Thursday.

Haart and Weinstein issued a shared statement to their respective social media accounts.

“After time and consideration, we have made the decision to divorce,” they wrote. “We have so much love and respect for each other, but have realized that it’s time to take some space to ensure that each of us lives the happiest and most fulfilling life possible. There are no secrets or bad events to We are just two best friends who met each other at a very young age and have grown over the last 9 years in our own way.We greatly appreciate your continued support as we embark on this new chapter of our lives, individually. “

The pair appear in the first season of My unorthodox life, a series that follows Hart’s family after they leave an ultra-Orthodox Jewish community.

The show was renewed for another season in September, per Variety.

Haart and Weinstein’s breakup comes shortly after the couple marked their nine-year wedding anniversary on October 17. At the time, none of them acknowledged the opportunity on social media.

However, the TikTok star marked the moment in 2020 with a picture featuring Weinstein. “Happy 8 years Ben ❤️,” Haart wrote along with a picture of the two.

Back in August, the couple opened up about their relationship in a Q&A video, which was shared on Hart’s YouTube channel.

“I do not regret getting married young because who I married, but I would not recommend getting married young,” Weinstein said in the video before Haart agreed, noting, “I never like to say I regret something in my life, but if the circumstances happened again, I certainly would not get married so young. Getting married as a 19-year-old is too young. “

When asked for advice he would give to young people in relationships, Weinstein added: “Try to do as many things as you can on your own. Try to spend as much time on yourselves together, make dinner with each other, do your own thing to establish your own independence and try not to start your relationship by being dependent on other people. “
