When it comes to marriage, there appears to be no happy ending for Eliza Coupe, who plays Jane Kerkovich-Williams in the romantic comedy "Happy Endings." She has been married twice and divorced twice

The actress married her first husband acting teacher, and puppeteer Randall Whittinghill in December 2007. However, their marriage ended in June 2013.

After shelling out a lump sum of $306,000, she had to make monthly payments of $7,000 in spousal support for the next two years, as they had no children together.

COUPE'S FIRST FAILED MARRIAGE

Citing irreconcilable differences, Whittinghill served Coupe with the divorce papers 12 years into their marriage, according to documents filed at Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The pair who exchanged their vows on New Year's Eve in 2007 had split since their fifth anniversary. The timing could not have been any worse as the serving came only two months after ABC canceled "Happy Endings."

During their marriage, the actress once joked that she only married Whittinghill due to his resemblance to "The Pirates Of The Caribbean" star Johnny Depp. US Weekly reports her to have said

"I literally only started dating my husband because he looked like Johnny Depp — and he knows that. We've been together for 12 years, and he still looks like Johnny Depp."

Whittinghill is an acclaimed acting coach with two decades of experience in design, production, and teaching. With his vast array of specialties, he has worked with some of the industry's big names, such as Damon Wayan Jr. and Tracee Ellis Ross. 

The teacher appears to have had a second chance at love based on his social media. He has posted numerous photos of his partner with who he shares a son and another on the way, evident from an ultrasound photo posted on January 19.

A SECOND SHOT AT LOVE

Following the "I Think I Love My Wife" actress' divorce from her first husband, she was lucky enough to find love with Darin Orien. Coupe announced their engagement in November 2014, with a black and white photo of the brand new ring.

According to DailyMail, the two must've dated for close to a year before she got ringed. Orien seemed to have proposed during the Thanksgiving family celebrations in Malibu, California.

The love birds got married a month later during a vacation in New Zealand. Unfortunately, their marriage was short-lived, and on March 27, 2018, they got divorced only four years into their marriage. It remains unclear whether he filed for spousal support.
