Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
Days after their ten year wedding anniversary, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have announced that they are getting a divorce. "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce," the couple tells People Magazine 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 two first met while filming Pearl Harbor in 2001, then reconnected while filming Daredevil in 2003 - the couple started dating soon afterward. The couple have three kids - Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
