*After being married for 21 years, “Married to Medicine” star Dr. Simone Whitmore and her husband Cecil have decided to divorce.

As reported by People, the couple, who share sons Miles, 19 and Michael, 15 — first met while students in Spelman College. The family has been part of the Bravo series since it premiered in March 2013.

Prior to the taping, Simone told PEOPLE that she filed for divorce in October 2017.

“There is no if here, there are no games. I am not pretending. I am done, ” she said. “I have reached a place where I am in a marriage where I do not feel loved and no sacrifices are being made for me to make me feel loved. I must move on.”

Cecil and Simone were the longest married couple on “Married to Medicine,” and have been open about their marital struggles this season. While they were inseparable in their early days, they drifted apart — even living at two separate houses.

“We’re in a place where we’re arguing over basics—,” Dr. Simone said in an episode that aired in December. “He’s just so hostile and angry about every little thing. When somebody is being mean, it’s hard to replace that with something nice or smile. It’s difficult.”

Although they went to therapy to try to work on their issues, Simone told PEOPLE their fighting got worse when the “Married to Medicine” season wrapped.

“It looked like we were improving. The problem is we should have continued counseling, and we did not,” she said. “We let life take over. We were busy over the summer with basketball tournaments, traveling and getting Miles ready for college. We should have kept marital counseling as a priority, but we let the ball drop.”

The final straw came about a month after their son Miles began college. 

“Cecil and I had a disagreement,” she recalled. “We were trying to talk through it — with sometimes tense, sometimes normal negotiations in process — and he woke up on Saturday morning, we had a blow-up. I knew that day that my marriage was over.”

“My marriage had ended,” she added. “I could no longer deal with the stuff he was dishing.”
