Lauren Skaar filed for divorce from the 45-year-old Bates Motel actor in July, citing irreconcilable differences, according to legal documents obtained by PEOPLE. They have no children together.
According to the filing, the couple separated April 5.
The couple met while shopping at a Whole Foods in L.A. and married two years later at a resort in Newport Beach, California. After popping the question, Vartan said he knew Skaar was "The One."
"It's a thing that people always say: 'When you know, you'll know.' I never really understood what that meant, and I do now," he told PEOPLE in 2010. "I literally cannot imagine my life without her. It's crazy. It's wonderful."
