It looks like Hilary Duff and her soon-to-be ex-husband, former NHL star Mike Comrie, tried marriage counseling for more than 18 months before announcing their separation. In the end, it wasn’t enough to save their union, as apparently Comrie didn’t do “any of the things they’d worked on.”

A source (aka someone from Huff’s PR team) told Us Weekly, “She felt he didn’t put enough effort into the relationship. He never did anything!”

One reason for not doing stuff? Comrie had to retire from professional hockey in 2012 due to a constant hip injury.

A source to Life & Style echoes this sentiment. “He’s in the house all day, every day,” an insider tells the mag. “It was a strain on the relationship.”

The couple announced two weeks ago that they “have mutually decided to an amicable separation” and will “remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives.” The two are parents to a toddler, Luca, of whom they’ll have joint custody.

It certainly looks like an amicable split with Hilary tweeting, “Mike and I are sitting here, we are so appreciative for all of your kindness & well wishes.” She continued, “Not an easy day but we’re getting thru it together.”
