Rose McGowan and Davey Detail are divorcing after two years, with the actress exclusively telling Gossip Cop that marriage “wasn’t for me.”

McGowan filed for divorce with her petition citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the breakup. They separated last May, but October legally marked their two-year wedding anniversary. The actress’ divorce documents specify that neither should need spousal support, and note that there is an agreement to guide the proceedings.

Gossip Cop spoke with McGowan about the split, and she exclusively tells us, “I’m very happy. We are good friends. I had the experience of being married and decided it wasn’t for me.” All in all, she seems to be doing okay, considering the circumstances. In fact, McGowan tells Gossip Cop, “I’m super happy! I only wanted to be married for a year and so I did exactly that!”

As Gossip Cop reported at the time, she and Detail (real name: David Leavitt) became engaged in 2013. They tied the knot a few months later in Los Angeles, having a small wedding with 60 guests. The nuptials actually came less than two weeks after McGowan’s house almost burned down after a fire broke out.

McGowan, who is active on social media, has not made any mention of the split on Twitter or Instagram. The former “Charmed” star was praised by followers earlier this week after sharing a stereotypical casting notice on Twitter. She has become known over the last year for calling out sexism and misogyny within the entertainment industry, and recently questioned Mel Gibson’s appearance at the Golden Globes.

For his part, Detail has not yet commented. He and McGowan are pictured above at an art event last year. UPDATE: McGowan tweeted Thursday night, “Here’s the deal, I only wanted to married for a short period of time. If I don’t conform to other societal norms, why would I have a traditional marriage?”
