The 37-year-old country singer made the announcement via an emotional text post shared to Instagram on Wednesday, which began with the poignant phrase: ‘It’s time.’
Though Kramer did not cite a specific reason for the split, a source told People that the 34-year-old NFL star ‘cheated and broke her trust again.’

‘After fighting for the marriage for so long, she’s come to terms with the realization that his patterns were never going to change,’ the insider alleged.
Jana, who boasts 2million Instagram followers, expressed anguish over the end of her marriage to Mike, whom she originally wed in 2015.
‘As I try to make sense of a reality I never wanted to believe could be possible again, those words have now become a reality,’ she wrote in her Instagram post.
‘I’ve fought y’all. I’ve loved hard. I’ve forgiven. I’ve put the work in. I’ve given everything I have, and now I have nothing else to give.’
Despite her heartbreak, Kramer stressed that she ‘still believe[s] wholeheartedly in marriage, love, and rebuilding.’

‘I just can’t fight any longer. It’s time to heal. Thank you for all the love, heart, and support, in many ways you have fought on this journey alongside me, and for that I am grateful.
‘I’ll always encourage you to continue the good fight, but you can’t fight it alone,’ concluded the Beautiful Lies songstress, who shares daughter Jolie Rae, five, and son Jace Joseph, two, with Caussin.
Still speaking to People, a source close to the situation stressed that the estranged couple are now ‘focusing on their kids.’
Jana and Mike began dating in August 2014 but split up weeks later when she announced on social media that he cheated on her. They later reconciled, and got married in May 2015 in a rustic outdoor ceremony in Caussin’s home state of Virginia.
After admitting he cheated again, the couple separated in August 2016 when their daughter Jolie Rae was just seven months old.

Although the reasons behind the couple’s second split were not explicitly revealed at the time, Jana later confirmed rumors of infidelity in a statement to People.
‘Mike was the biggest of the betrayals because it was the first time in a relationship where I truly loved the version of me,’ she told the outlet at the time.
‘I didn’t feel I had to prove that I was good enough, I was vulnerable and finally at peace with myself. But I was fooled.’
Mike, also speaking to People on the matter, acknowledged that ‘certain actions and behaviors have caused issues in my marriage and I am deeply sorry for the pain I have caused Jana.
‘I have and will continue to take the steps needed to change who I am as a person in order to be a better husband and father,’ concluded Mike, who had actually filed for divorce from Jana at the time.
In the couple’s book titled The Good Fight: Wanting to Leave, Choosing to Stay, and the Powerful Practice for Loving Faithfully, which was released just seven months ago, the pair dicuss the aftermath of Mike’s multiple affairs and how they worked hard to salvage their marriage.
‘I’ve dated only a few women in my life. Most of my relationships can be more described as “talking to,” which essentially means we were sleeping together but I never committed enough to get my feelings involved. And when I did commit, I inevitably cheated. I couldn’t be alone,’ explained Mike in one excerpt.
‘Now, I loved and still love being Jana’s husband, but early in the relationship I had no idea who I was anymore.’
As for Jana’s perspective, the country singer wrote in an essay for Good Morning America that the pain she felt ‘consumed my every thought and physically hurt me more than I thought I could handle.
‘Thinking back, it seems like a terrible nightmare that I wouldn’t wish on anyone.’
Despite a divorce filing in 2016 and ‘several weeks’ of separation, the pair eventually reconciled and renewed their wedding vows by December 2017.
‘2017……..you broke my heart, you broke me down, you made me question everything, but damn did you make me strong,’ captioned Jana, who shared images of the couple’s vow renewal ceremony to social media.
She continued: ‘You taught me patience, you taught me family was everything. You made me believe not only in myself but the power of forgiveness.
‘You turned me into the women I always wanted to be. Here’s to always believing in love and fighting for it,’ she concluded.
Alongside her marriage struggles, Jana was also coping with the trauma of suffering a miscarriage, which she revealed to the world just weeks before renewing her vows with Mike. It was the third miscarriage she ever endured.
