It was clearly a decision that fans didn’t see coming as they reacted on social media.
Fans Mourn Channing And Jenna's Split
Tatum and Dewan were married for almost nine years before they decided to split for good. It didn’t take long for fans to mourn the news on Twitter.
One fan used Tyra Banks’s infamous “I was rooting for you" moment to describe her thoughts on the separation.

Another said Tatum and Dewan’s split was just another on the list of other celebrities who surprised fans when they called it quits. They noted that they hoped famous couple Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively would never follow suit.

One fan said they lost hope in romantic things after Tatum and Dewan publicly showed their love and affection recently.

Another attempted to convince Tatum and Dewan why they should stay together.
No, Channing and Jenna. When you get married, you made a decision to "live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible" TOGETHER. You stick together no matter what. You don't make excuses. Love is a decision. Period. You don't call it quits the moment you don't feel like it. — Broadway Janitor (@BroadwayJanitor) April 3, 2018
One fan said that while they are sad about the split, girls probably have their eyes on Tatum now that he’s back on the market.

Another said they were fearful of the idea of a couple like Tatum and Dewan being able to lose affection for one another in a seemingly sudden way.
Channing Tattum and Jenna confirmed split. Makes me really scary that someone will just fall out of love suddenly. — Neil Jed Castro (@neiljedthegreat) April 3, 2018
One fan said she was more than frustrated over the split.
Almost rolled my eyes back in to another dimension reading Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan’s break up statement . “Nothing has changed about how much we love one another” Well it has.. Clearly. — SCOUSEBARB (@scousebarbiex) April 3, 2018
Another blasted fans who had given up on love because of Tatum and Dewan’s decision.
People are so obsessed with the Channing and Jenna split, believing that true love doesn't exist simply because they put their definition of love into their relationship. Btw there are many couples who have stayed together for 70 years and more, maybe you should look into those — Cheenee Gonzalez (@cheeneegonzalez) April 3, 2018
