Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are divorcing. The couple announced the breakup today, one day after their 10th wedding anniversary.
In a statement, Ben and Jen told “Extra,” “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.”
Sources tell us the couple is seriously committed to co-parenting, so much so that Ben is actually still living in the family home and will continue to for now.
The sources added that Garner and Affleck worked at their marriage for a long time and were in therapy for years, relaying that this is not a huge divorce and will be handled via mediation. Sources explained that this is about two people who love each other and have mutual admiration for one another.
The two stars wed in 2005 and have three children; Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
