A Timeline of Brittany Snow and Tyler Stanaland's Relationship
Brittany Snow and Tyler Stanaland went their separate ways in September 2022 after two years of marriage. In a joint statement shared on Instagram, the two revealed their "difficult decision to separate," which they noted was "made with love and mutual respect for one another." Since then, the two have remained mum about their split, though Snow may have hinted at it in a May 2023 interview with Bustle.
Although she didn't cite a specific incident, the 37-year-old actor revealed, "In the past year I went through probably the hardest mental health challenge I've ever faced." She continued, "In one day, in a matter of hours, my life turned completely upside down. I was blindsided and every thing I thought I knew, held sacred and truly trusted in my life was completely different."
Luckily, she had people around her to help her through. "Thank god for my friends," she said. "I don't know if I would have made it without them. They reminded me who I was and the things I stood for. I used all the tools I knew. All of them."
Snow stole fans' hearts as Chloe in the Pitch Perfect franchise and again in 2019's "Someone Great," in which she played cynical Blair Helms. Her ex Stanaland then stepped into the spotlight as one of the Oppenheim Group real-estate agents in Netflix's "Selling the OC," which premiered on Aug. 24, 2022. The "Selling Sunset" spinoff follows the lives and coastal luxe real estate behind Jason Oppenheim's Newport Beach, CA, brokerage.
During season one, Stanaland found himself wrapped up in an office scandal with one of his costars who attempted to kiss him during the show, though the incident wasn't caught on camera. However, it did put a strain on his and Snow's marriage, per a source that told People in September that the ordeal "broke them." Thus, leading the couple to announce their separation.
Snow and Stanaland began dating sometime in 2018 after the latter slid into Snow's DMs. For the most part, they've kept their relationship out of the public eye, that is until Stanaland became a cast member of "Selling the OC."
Ahead, look back at all of the pair's relationship milestones prior to their breakup.
2018: Brittany Snow and Tyler Stanaland Begin Dating
In 2018, Snow and Stanaland took their bond to the next level — and in the most mainstream way possible: Instagram DMs. "We had a bunch of friends in common, and he actually reached out to me on Instagram with a really lame pickup line," Snow told People. The couple kept their first date casual, opting to grab dinner at a Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood.
"We got tacos after years of being infatuated with one another and forgot how to speak entirely," Stanaland joined in. "There was a certain amount of tequila consumed, and then we just started talking a lot. Then we fell in love and nothing's really changed, we're still eating tacos and margaritas together."
February 2019: Brittany Snow and Tyler Stanaland Get Engaged
The couple got engaged in early February 2019 but didn't let fans in on the big news until later that month. They wanted some time to "celebrate the old-fashioned way," Stanaland said on Instagram.
"The proposal happened in our kitchen," Snow told The Knot. "Which was the same place we had our first kiss. Tyler, then, had organized a secret engagement party at our favorite restaurant with all our closest friends and family waiting."
July 2019: Brittany Snow and Tyler Stanaland Briefly Move to NYC
Stanaland briefly traded the West Coast for the Big Apple. The couple gave People an inside look at their newly renovated Greenwich Village apartment in October 2019; but based on Stanaland's Instagram, it appears they'd already been living in NYC for about three months at that time.
"Even though we're from different backgrounds... we gravitate toward the same things stylistically," Stanaland told the outlet. "So for us, there wasn't as much conflict; it was a pretty seamless process."
Snow added that the loft's floating bookshelves were what sold her on the property. "I'm a huge fan of decorating bookshelves," the "Pitch Perfect" actor said. "Even when we're watching TV, I get up, go fix something, sit back down and then get up and fix it again. It's fun to make little tweaks and to make it our own."

She donned a flower collar that matched her mom's bouquet.
