It’s kind of hard to believe that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have lasted this long as a couple, isn’t it?

The stars, who began dating in 2015, very quickly after their respective divorces from Gavin Rossdale and Miranda Lambert, are just remarkably different people.

Like, Gwen Stefani is Gwen Stefani, and Blake Shelton has deer tracks tattooed on his arm. They might as well be from different planets.

But still, despite the odds, Gwake has managed to survive for over a year and a half now, and on rather solid ground at that.

Unfortunately, it looks like it could all be over now.

During the most recent season of The Voice, the celebrity judges were reportedly urged to play up their relationship more and more.

According to a new report from Life & Style, NBC executives were pushing the couple "to act very affectionate and playful with each other."

Not just fun flirtation, but to an extreme degree.

In fact, they "really wanted an on-screen proposal," but The Voice season finale aired this week, and obviously a proposal never happened.

And that’s because, in real life, the former No Doubt frontwoman and the award-winning country crooner are "miserable."

A source claims that Gwen "wants the world to think everything is perfect with Blake. But that’s just not the case anymore."

"Gwen and Blake began to argue more. Then she started to realize they’re just too different to spend the rest of their lives together."

Again, we’re a little surprised it took this long.

They’re allegedly so close to a breakup that Gavin Rossdale is beginning to worry for the sake of the three children he shares with Gwen.

"Gavin is a very concerned parent and wants to be sure Gwen and Blake aren’t arguing in front of the boys," the source explains.

Naturally, like any devoted father who cares about them (and his former partner), "he has concerns how the boys would handle a breakup."

So this is all pretty sad, right?

Even in good times, it would totally make sense if Blake didn’t want to propose on The Voice, or if Gwen wouldn’t be down with it.

After all, they’ve always been somewhat private about their relationship, and we can’t see them enjoying something as gimmicky as that.

An on-screen proposal. C’mon.

But if the reason for the proposal not happening isn’t how lame it would be, if it’s actually because they really are having all these issues …

No one is prepared for that kind of sadness.

Remember when the news first broke that Gwen had filed for divorce from Gavin? She was absolutely heartbroken over this.

She’d been with the Bush frontman for many years, and she’d only had a couple of boyfriends before him. The point?

Blake Shelton is one of very, very few men to get so close to her in her life, and losing him would be devastating for her.

We’re not ready to witness sad, heartbroken Gwen Stefani again. We simply cannot go through it right now.

So come on, kids. Work it out.
