If you were a child of the 90s, then this has been a rough week for you, relationship goals-wise. First, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale call it quits. Then Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog split (I am admittedly not too broken up about that one).

And now the one to drive a stake straight through your last, fleeting hope that true love exists: Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that in the new The X-Files revamp, Fox Mulder and Dana Scully are no longer together.

Dean also shares my WTFness.

I know, I know. The original fictional couple to ship before shipping was even a thing; it just seems so damn unfair. Especially after it took them the better part of seven seasons to get it the hell together and admit their feelings for one another, only to have the show soon jump the shark and promptly swan dive face-down into a pile of bad decisions.

Alas, a sneak peek that Fox screened at TCA confirms their split. During a blowout argument, Scully pleads, "Mulder, listen to me — as your friend and as a physician, you are on dangerous ground here."

Aw, man. From partners to best friends to lovers, back to friends and a professional relationship.15-year-old me is taking a beating this week.

The X-Files returns to FOX in 2016.
