Looks like John Cena and Nikki Bella beat the "seven-year itch" to the punch.
After six years together and engaged for about a year, the WWE reality show wonder-couple has decided to go their separate ways, leaving fans, family, and friends wondering what went wrong.

The couple released a statement to
US Magazine, "While this decision was a difficult one, we continue to have a great deal of love and respect for one another." Apparently, a "great deal" wasn't enough to get the two to the altar, but if their six years together meant anything, perhaps Cena and Bella can still be friends. For the sake of must-see TV if not for anything else.
Bella's twin sister, Brie, is happily married and has a baby girl. If you've ever watched their E! reality TV shows, Total Divas and Total Bellas, you'll recall (Nikki) Bella's desires to be married and have a child too. But Cena is self-proclaimed no-kids kinda guy, leaving Bella to choose between potential motherhood or a life with him, child-free. Poor Bella not only let her biological clock tick for six perfectly fertilizable years, but she didn't end up with her "Prince Charming" either. It's no surprise why wrestling arenas aren't the setting for childhood fairytales.
