The only celeb couple America ever believed in is splitting up. If marriage doesn't last for the massively talented and all-around-cool Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, then what hope is there for the rest of us?

Us Weekly reports that after nine years of marriage, the two comedians -- who looked great together as Gob Bluth and that woman he married on "Arrested Development" -- are getting a divorce. To add to America's collective frustration at seeing the two split, a source told the magazine that "It's very amicable." They have two children, Archie, 3, and Abel, 2.
