2015 isn't even over yet but we're already reading a lot of reports of couples filing for divorce and calling it quits left and right. What is happening? When MTV's Instagram shared this photo earlier today, our hearts can't stop breaking because looking at all of them in one photo feels like a little too much.

What is happening, you guys? Is this the year for breakups and we missed the memo? We need that, you know, so we can prepare for them too. Here are the eight couples who called it quits this year.

 1  Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik

These two are the latest to join this breakup photo. After getting engaged in August 2013, the two finally called it quits weeks ago. They haven't talked about the reason for their breakup yet, but fans have expressed mixed feelings on the whole thing.

 2  Eleanor Calder and Louis Tomlinson      

We thought Louis and Eleanor were going to last because they've been together for years after Harry Styles introduced them. However, before flying in for their One Direction concert in Manila just this year, news came out that the two have split after growing apart because Tommo is always away for work.


 3  Olivia Culpo and Nick Jonas

These two were picture-perfect for two years. Nick even wrote the song "Jealous" for her, describing how he feels when someone looks her way whenever they're out together. Olivia and Nick haven't revealed the reason for their split yet, but whenever the "Chains" hitmaker talks about his ex, he says that it was a love two years for them. Aww.

 4  Ariana Grande and Big Sean

The two have always been open about their relationship, even sharing a lot of photos on Instagram and getting all sweet during events. But after eight months of dating, they called it quits. The two have never really revealed the reason for their breakup and Ariana also said that she doesn't like talking about it in a powerful essay she shared on her Instagram

 5  Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson

Gigi and Cody have been together for two years, but they split this year. The good thing about these two is that they still see each other as a good friend. Proof? They were seated beside each other in a plane and even snapped a selfie together. Aww.

After 13 years, The Voice coach Gwen and her rockstar hubby have filed for a divorce citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split. The couple have both appeared in last year's The Voice season and have three kids together.

 7  Emma Roberts and Evan Peters

Like #Zerrie, Emma and Evan have called off their engagement after six months. The two haven't really revealed the reason for their split but it has been reported that their breakup was amicable. 

 8  Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog

Even the stars of The Muppets are having a difficult time, too. Earlier today, this ex-couple released a statement about their breakup and wouldn't want to discuss the whole thing unless they were given "the proper offer" to do so. Read their statement below.
