Despite one of the best wedding concepts of the year with their steampunk theme entitled “Till Death,” it looks like soap stars Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos, “General Hospital”) and Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra, “The Young and the Restless”) are calling it quits after less than two months of marriage. The couple, who were wed on Saturday, October 23 at the Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, CA, had been dating for five years before they got engaged on Valentine’s Day.

Word of the pair’s breakup first came to light over the weekend when savvy fans started to notice the couple had deleted every video and picture from their well-attended wedding from each of their respective Instagram profiles and even removed an ample amount of photos of their outings together over the years which in the social media world only means one thing: a breakup announcement of sorts was coming.

On Monday, Soap Opera Digest confirmed that the couple had quietly called it quits. No additional information was provided by the publication and neither star had commented on the matter at press time.
