They shocked fans with news of their breakup on Thursday, but a source close to Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray tells PEOPLE that the separation is indeed amicable.

“There was no cheating, no event or incident that led to the breakup,” says the source. “Andi and Josh spent their engagement working on their relationship and it just didn’t work out. They figured out that they’re not supposed to be together.”

Murray’s mother, Lauren Goodhart Murray, weighed in on the split on Friday, writing on her Facebook page: “Yes it’s true, Andi & Josh have chosen to break off their engagement. Although there was no one thing that precipitated their decision, they were thoughtful & wise in their decision and I’m happy they figured this out before getting married & having kids.”

Goodhart Murray went on to write: “The engagement time did it’s job in helping them determine what’s best for them. I know we all wanted the storybook ending but I trust The Lord has an even better journey for each of them and that makes my heart happy. Thank you for your love and messages. I’m overwhelmed & humbled by your words. XO”

Adds the source of Dorfman, 27, and Murray, 30, who got engaged on the show last May and both live in Atlanta, “They’re still friends.”
