    Khloé Kardashian Odom and Lamar Odom's marriage is coming to an end.

    The couple has been married for four years and has let the world bear witness to the many ups and downs of their relationship.

    The E! reality star and her athlete hubby have been through everything from infertility issues to cheating rumors, and just about everything in between in a relatively short amount of time.

    A source confirmed to E! News that that 29-year-old beauty was filing for divorce from Lamar later on Friday, Dec. 13.

    And while the decision to call it quits was without a doubt a difficult one for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, it looks like she's finally at peace with ending the marriage.

    So was there one final straw that lead Khloé to sign on the dotted line or was it a perfect storm of events?

    Let's take a look at what may have gone wrong between the Odoms:
