Glee actress Jane Lynch has announced that she and her wife of three years are getting divorced.

Lynch and Dr. Lara Embry were married in May 2010.

She said in a statement: “Lara and I have decided to end our marriage.

This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another. We ask for privacy as we deal with this family matter.”

The couple’s wedding in Massachusetts was featured in The New York Times. In the article, Lynch described how their personality differences meant they had to adjust to each other.

“Lara’s very patient,” she said. “I move fast. I’m very impulsive, and we kind of process things at a different pace, so we’ve both had to step up in that area. I’ve had to slow down, and she had to get a move on.”

The couple met in 2009 at a San Francisco fund-raiser at which Lynch was a presenter and Dr. Embry was among those being honoured. Lynch is currently starring in the musical Annie on Broadway.
