When the spark is gone, maybe that's a sign to walk away before walking down the aisle.

A close friend of Welcome to the Dollhouse actress Heather Matarazzo and musician Carolyn Murphy told Us Weekly the couple has split after five years together.

"In the end, they realized they were missing the spark. They had been best friends for so long, it turned out they loved each other, but they were no longer in love."

They had been engaged for about four years, originally planning to be married in California, until Prop 8 passed. Then, when New York legalized same-sex marriage in 2011, they relaunched different wedding plans in their home state.

In addition to Dollhouse, Heather also starred in The Princess Diaries, Saved!, and Scream 3.
