 “The future we wanted for so long isn’t the future we will have,” Jon wrote in the post. “We knew before we started that it would be hard but we always had hope to keep us going when things got tough.”

“Our situation is hopeless and I don’t know what the next chapter in our life will look like. I’m a husband and father by invitation and have never taken that for granted,” he said, adding:

We aren’t the perfect couple, I know I’m far from the husband and father I want to be or wish I could be but long-distance relationships are only ever meant to be temporary.

Moreover, Jon explained that he and Rachel “need time and space” to work out what happens next, before thanking fans that have supported them over the years.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Rachel shared a video to her Instagram page, captioned, “Final Visa Update.” The former TLC reality star shared news of their split, saying:

It absolutely pains me to post this. This isn’t the update we wanted to share. This isn’t the ending we were hoping for, nor is it the finale we were thinking would happen. Long-distance relationships can be brutal on the toughest of couples. We fought hard for a long time and stayed strong for over 7 years, waiting.

Meanwhile, Rachel explained that the distance for so many years has taken its toll. She added, “We have, unfortunately, grown too far apart. The decision has been made, on our end, to not continue,” adding the sad words, “The visa journey is sadly over.”

Rachel asked her followers to give them both “privacy and time to adjust to our new reality,” adding:

Thank you to everyone who has stuck it out with us through all of these years. Here’s to the cherished read pages and to new chapters.

Wishing 90 Day Fiancé alums Jon and Rachel a happy life following their sad split.
