I did not see this one coming

In a society where celebrities get together, hook up, break up and get back together with reckless abandon, we were sure that this was one relationship meant to last.

We were wrong.

Levi Johnston, who this blog once identified as one of the most famous high school hockey players in the sport's history, has split with fiance Bristol Palin, daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Admittedly, the media is coming to this story pretty late in the game.

MSNBC reports (via that Bristol and Levi broke up a few weeks ago, quoting an anonymous source as saying it was mutual.

The couple has a two-month-old son together named Tripp. Johnston's father recently told People magazine that Levi is a proud father who still sees his son.

Earlier this year, Johnston quit his job in the oil fields, prompting Kyle to label him a roustabout. There's no word on what he's up to these days, or whether Johnston -- who once famously declared on his MySpace page "I live to play hockey" -- has any plans or aspirations to return to the ice.

But the situation certainly begs the question, in a world where the Bristols and Levis of the world can't stay together, is there any hope for the rest of us?
