The couple that exchanged vows in Season 2 of “Love Is Blind,” Iyanna McNeely and Jarrette Jones, are separating. In a joint statement posted to Instagram on Wednesday, the Netflix celebrities revealed that they are getting divorced after nearly a year of marriage. They stated, “After considerable deliberation, we’re saddened to report that we have separated and will initiate the divorce process.
Jones and McNeely informed the audience that despite their lives “moving in various directions,” they still love each other. The statement read, “We will always wish each other the very best, and, coming to this choice was far from easy.
The couple thanked people who had offered support throughout their reality TV marriage and asked for privacy as they navigated their split.”As we finish this chapter of our lives, we ask for your patience. We appreciate how supportive our close friends and family have been throughout our travels. Thank you to Netflix and the “Love Is Blind” family for this once-in-a-lifetime chance.

McNeely, 28, and Jones, 32, expressed their gratitude for participating in the pod experiment and becoming engaged before meeting each other. “Each of you has infused our life with a boundless amount of love and joy. We don’t regret a single thing. This experience has taught us so much about love, vulnerability, and ourselves.
The road to their marriage wasn’t easy, as viewers saw during Season 2. Jones struggled with his affections for both McNeely and Mallory Zapata, who played McNeely’s co-star in the show and with whom he had struck up a blind friendship in the pods.
Following the conclusion of the performance, Jones spoke exclusively to Page Six and said, “It absolutely feels nice that we were able to navigate this path together.” “I think blending our lives as one has been the largest obstacle we’ve worked on,” says the author.
We were two people that are utter, for the most part, opposite, he continued. She is an introvert, whereas I am an extrovert. I believe that’s something we’ll keep putting effort into.
