Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have been spending time apart.

"Many of you guys have been asking me about Jax and I and our relationship," the mother-of-one explained. "I just think it's important to be real and honest with you guys because we've shared so much of our lives with you guys."

"On my last podcast I alluded to many marriages go through rocky times," Cartwright, 35, continued. "Yes, marriages in general are very hard and I've had a particularly rough year this past year. Jax and I are taking time apart and I made the decision to move into another home to take some space for the sake of my mental health."

The estranged couple were open about the highs and the lows of their romance on the hit series, especially after welcoming their kiddo in 2021. "We do the same amount of work. He's chasing around a 2-year-old all the time," Cartwright revealed in a 2023 interview. "I'm changing diapers, and we're both doing a lot of intermittent training on the baths and feeding Cruz. It's very, very equal. I couldn't imagine being a single mother. I bow down to them."

While the southern belle praised Taylor, she also made it clear the two can get on each other's nerves. "We're together all the time, which can drive us a little crazy," she revealed. "So I'll have a girls' night, and he'll have a guys' night."

However, the VPR OG knew he was a lot to take on. "Like I said, she's the ying to my yang, a little," Taylor said in a 2023 interview. "I'm a tough guy to be around, so it takes a certain person to deal with my c---. Even through all this, and even though my life is a lot better now, I'm still tough to handle. I think she's the only one that can put up with me really."
