Film stars Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are divorcing. The couple has been married for 10 years, and ironically their anniversary was on Monday. Many people were not expecting this! The couple issued a joint statement saying, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. 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.”
Garner and Affleck plan to seek mediation for this divorce. Together, they have three children named Violet who is 9, Seraphina who is 6, and Samuel who is 3. The couple met as co-stars on the set of their Daredevil film which was back in 2003, and they started dating afterwards.
