The news we’ve all been anticipating is finally here. After 10 years of marriage and 3 kids together, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are getting divorced. Yesterday was their 10-year anniversary, and clearly not much was celebrated other than finally coming to a decision to split up, which they have been battling for weeks (months? years?) now.
The couple released a statement about the decision. “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.”
The two decided to take the divorce process slow in order to figure out legal actions. However, they already agreed to divide custody of the kids. It was reported by MarketWatch that the couple waited until after their 10th wedding anniversary to forfeit any spousal benefits they might choose to claim in the future.
