Christian author Joshua Harris announced Wednesday that he and his wife, Shannon, are separating.

The former courtship advocate shared with his Instagram followers that the two will continue their lives together as friends.

“In recent years, some significant changes have taken place in both of us,” he says. “It is with sincere love for one another and understanding of our unique story as a couple that we are moving forward with this decision.”

Harris rose to prominence in conservative Christian circles when he wrote his book I Kissed Dating Goodbye in 1997 and, three years later, Boy Meets Girl: Say Hello to Courtship. In the books, he encouraged Christians to avoid the dating scene and instead pursue a group- and family-oriented approach he called courtship.
