Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner confirm split in a joint statement
Waking up to this news was heartbreaking. Just a day after their 10th marriage anniversary, one of Hollywood’s favourite couples, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, announced their split. The couple spoke to People magazine about their decision in a joint 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.
– Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner’s joint statement to People
According to sources, Ben, 42, and Jennifer, 43, plan to seek mediation. The two are parents to three kids - Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6 and Samuel, 3. Both Ben and Jen have often been spotted at their family home in Los Angeles, spending some quality time together and with their kids, but the status of their marriage was constantly under speculation.
At the 2013 Oscar speech, Ben had said, “I thank my wife for working on our marriage.” Well, we should have taken the hint. The two first met as co-stars while shooting for Pearl Harbour in 2001, then reconnected while making their 2003 film Daredevil and started dating soon afterwards.
