So much for happily ever after.

Just 14 months after their courthouse wedding in Prescott Valley, Arizona, high school sweethearts Aubrey Wolters and Brandon Akerill have decided to call it quits.

The couple – featured in season two of MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” – have a one year-old son named Austin.

“Brandon & I are no longer together, we are simply just friends,” Aubrey, 19, posted on her official Facebook page yesterday.

But fans following her on Formspring.me probably saw the split coming.

In a post on December 31, the teen mom wrote: “I feel so torn, my life is spiraling in a really weird direction right now & I don’t like it.”

The teenage love story began to unravel from the moment they said “I do”.

“After they’re married Brandon tells Aubrey that she’s going to be a housewife. Aubrey tells Brandon he can go to hell. And so it begins…,” one blogger recounts.

In followup posts Wednesday evening, Aubrey clarified that she and Brandon are not fighting and “still love each other”.  They are going to seek a legal separation instead of divorce.

“I can’t afford to get divorced right now & it’s really not on the top of our priority list,” she said.  ”I’m not looking to get married again anytime soon anyway.

Aubrey and Brandon are the second couple from season two of “16 and Pregnant” to bite the dust.  Christinna Robinson filed for divorce from her baby-daddy Isiah in November.

“Ever since we officially decided to get a divorce and stopped talking, he hasn’t come to visit Destiny or helped financially in over a month,” she said in a recent interview. “It’s almost like Destiny and I were a package deal, and now that were not together, he doesn’t have anything to do with her. It really hurts.”

But don’t give up on that happy ending yet:  last night’s episode of “Teen Mom 2” showed the engagement of Corey Simms and Leah Messer.

As of today, they are still happily married.
