Their split announcement comes just weeks after Love Is Blind fans were delighted when the couple revealed they had rikindled their romance, during the reunion show.
Hosts Vanessa and Nick Lachey were quick to grill the couple about what they had been up to since the show wrapped, with Vanessa asking Raven if they had ‘hooked up’.
Teasing a big announcement, Vanessa said: ‘Have you guys talked since [filming], been out since then, hooked up since then?’ to which a shy Raven responded: ‘Yes.’
Pressing for more information, Vanessa quizzed: ‘Are you dating right now?’
An excited Raven then confirmed that they were, before the pair – who had been sitting on opposite sofas – dashed towards each other to share a kiss and embrace.
What? Their split comes just two weeks after they revealed they had rekindled their romance and were back together during the reunion episode, after previously parting ways at the altar
‘Look at that! We split them up on the couch,’ Vanessa said, adding: ‘I’m so happy for you guys, we put you at the furthest points of the couch, I’m sorry!’
Speaking at the time about their rekindled romance, Raven then joked that SK had been getting loads of flirty messages from fans after they watched the pair split up in the weddings episode.
She explained: ‘It’s so funny, we’re watching [the show] and he’s like ‘oh my God babe, I have to show you, I’m getting so many DMs’ and I’m like ‘stay out of my man’s DMs!’ Like oh my God, I see you all ladies!’
During the series, the couple had found the prospect of a long-distance marriage challenging, as SK had committed to going back to study in California, while Raven lives in Dallas.

However, despite being around a three-hour flight away from each other, the loved-up couple confirmed that they were making it work, with Raven gushing over their ‘beautiful’ relationship.
Speaking about the challenges of long distance, she said: Raven: ‘Our communication, I think I can speak for both of us, we’ve never been on this level in any other relationship like, every time I think we reach a new level, nothing’s perfect but we’ve grown so much from this experiment.
‘Being apart, it makes it so much better when we’re together. Of course, I would prefer to be with him every day but we’ve grown so much from it and it’s really beautiful to do that.’

Showing her support for her friends’ romance, co-star Zanab Jaffrey gushed: ‘[SK] you bring out a side of Raven that like a lot of people don’t get to see. I love my girl but she’s a tough shell to crack, but when you do break her open she’s so tender, sweet and loving and you brought that out of her!’
SK then joked that despite her bubbly exterior, Raven ‘surprised’ him by her quiet lifestyle and desire to go to sleep at 9pm every night in an amusing moment.
Their decision to rekindle their romance came after fans were left completely shocked when SK decided not to go through with their wedding.
After saying ‘I do’ at the altar, Raven was left completely devastated when SK did not exchange the same vows, instead walking away from their ceremony.
As there was a long pause before he gave his answer, SK’s mother Adeola could be seen hopefully mouthing ‘I do’, before looking disappointed as he gave the opposite answer.

Explaining his shock decision at the altar, he said: ‘Today Raven, we both know how we feel about each other, I love you. However we have a very unique and complex set of circumstances.
‘I feel like today is not the best time for us to do this.’
Despite Raven’s devastation, the pair shared a hug at the altar before Raven walked away from the ceremony.
In a sweet moment afterwards, SK’s mother Adeola visited Raven in her bridal suite and gushed about how she ‘loved her’, lending her support at the difficult time.
‘I just want to let you know, I like you, I love you so, so much! I would have wanted this to happen today, but I don’t know what SK means,’ Adeola said.
After the ceremony, SK admitted that he knew he risked losing her forever because of his decision, with Raven admitting her upset with the outcome of the wedding.
