Christiane Amanpour and husband Jamie Rubin are going their separate ways after 20 years of marriage, reports the Washington Post.

The paper says the divorce is amicable and the two remain friends.

The couple met in Bosnia in 1997 while Amanpour was on assignment as chief international correspondent for CNN and Rubin was traveling with Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright. Rubin was the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs at the time.

Christiane and Jamie wed in Rome in 1998, and have an 18-year-old son named Darius.

The 60-year-old journalist now lives in London and hosts CNN’s “Amanpour” and “Amanpour on PBS,” among other projects.

The Post reports Rubin is in Washington working as a consultant for the lobbying firm Ballard Partners.
