Wang, a designer renowned for her wedding gown collections, married Becker, a computer executive, in 1989. According to WWD, Becker helped Wang turn her fashion line into a multimillion-dollar business and has become increasingly involved in the company's day-to-day operations in recent years.
So what does their split mean for the brand? A source close to the couple told WWD, "They will not let this impact the running of the company. They have worked too hard to build it up.”
If Wang and Becker do continue working together post-split, they'll have some inspiration. The couples in the slideshow below managed to put their breakups behind them in the workplace.
