Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are divorcing after ten years of marriage. They released this statement: “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 announcement, which they made one day after their ten-year wedding anniversary, comes as a shock to some despite the growing speculation that they were having problems. Jennifer and Ben met on the set of their film Daredevil in 2003 and wed in June 2005. They have three children together.
