Married at First Sight star Nate Duhon has sadly filed divorce from his co-star and wife, Sheila Downs.

The Chicago-based couple, who appeared solid and completely in love on Married at First Sight's fifth season this past summer, have called it quits on their marriage, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Nate, 26, reportedly filed the divorce paperwork on November 14, citing irreconcilable differences in Cook County court.

Sheila currently resides in Arlington Heights, while Nate has reportedly moved back to his home state of Michigan.

The former couple declined comment on the matter when contacted.

Nate and Sheila met at the altar in 2016, where they not only exchanged names but also vows. Their wedding was held at the Palmer House Hilton and filmed for the Lifetime reality series.

During the rest of the Married at First Sight season, Nate and Sheila lived together with Nate's little brother, and the pair seemed like the perfect couple, as they bonded over their shared religious views and moral values. They also had incredible physical chemistry.

Nate often referred to his wife as his "queen," and Sheila went as far as changing her name to prove to her husband that she was in it for the long haul.

The pair briefly separated, however, towards the end of the season following a blowout fight in which Nate disrespected his wife by criticizing her past relationships.

The unaired comment resulted in Sheila moving out of their shared home, but by the August 2017 season finale, they were back together and committed to making their relationship work.

In fact, all three Season 5 Married at First Sight couples decided to stay together at the end of the extreme six-week long experiment, but now only bar manager Ashley Petta and Chicago business publication co-founded Anthony D'Amico appear to still be an item.

Gym owner Cody Knapek and Chicago dietitian Danielle DeGroot announced their split in late August 2017.

Cody then filed for divorce from Danielle in late September, and according to the Chicago Tribune, they are expected to be heard in court on November 22.

Only three of the 15 couples from all of Married at First Sight's past editions went on to have successful, lasting relationships.

Lifetime announced earlier this month the network plans to air a Married at First Sight: Holiday Game Night holiday special featuring the three Chicago-area couples, but the episode filmed before the two couples announced their breakups, according to the newspaper. 

The holiday special is scheduled to air on December 26 at 9PM ET/PT on Lifetime.
