A not so 'Sweet' ending for Josh Lucas as wife, Jessica Henriquez, files for divorce

By Rebekah Penner ,

After less than two years of marriage, Sweet Home Alabama actor, Josh Lucas and wife, Jessica Ciencin Henriquez, have called it quits.

Henriquez filed for divorce earlier this month reported People. A source wouldn't divulge the reason for the split, only saying that Henriquez had filed for divorce.

After a chance encounter at a dog park in New York in 2011, Lucas and Henriquez quickly became engaged only six weeks later. The couple later married quietly in New York City’s Conservatory Garden in March of 2012.

Over the past 22 months, the couple has experienced many highs and lows. Lucas and Henriquez welcomed son, Noah Rev Mauer (last name is Lucas’ real last name) in July of 2012.

Only two months later, Henriquez revealed that she was battling cervical cancer and had been since before she met Lucas, according to E! Online.

Lucas had been the first person Henriquez told early on their relationship.

"I felt like there was a 100 percent commitment and support during the whole thing. I was falling in love with him while I was starting treatment," said Henriquez in an interview with The Huffington Post in 2012.

This was the first marriage for Lucas. A rep for the actor has yet to comment.
