No. The right one is fall out. Though we are very familier wid 'fall apart'. But it doesn't make the right sense here, fall apart means to have some distance between two (physically). But here the sense is of "not being united" i.e. to have distance mentally.

FALL OUT means quarrel. It is opposite/antonym of harmony. If it had been unity/together instead of harmony, apart would have been right.

May be falling apart is the phrase used when they will be divided in two teams by someone else. Not by their own. If so. Then use out.

At first I thought it was also fall apart.

But this is about relationship Kinship. You fall "in" a relationship and you fall "out" of a relationship.

Live "in" harmony live "out" of harmony. Just my 2 cents.
