It seems that in Hollywood love just never lasts. Today, a day after their 10th Wedding anniversary Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced that they’re filing for divorce.
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the couple told People in a joint statement. “We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy, we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
The couple had quite the up-and-down relationship since meeting on the set of the movie Daredevil back in 2003 but still found the time to spawn three children together: Violet, 9; Seraphina, 6; and Samuel, 3.
The rumors have been going around for a while so this is really no big surprise since reportedly Affleck has been seen getting very cozy with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice costar Tao Okamoto. Hopefully, the divorce is quiet and clean for the children’s sake.
