Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Split After 10 Years Of Marriage.
The couple confirmed on Tuesday the split via the following 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.”
Rumors first started swirling about the state of their relationship earlier this month, with an insider telling Us Weekly, “The marriage is in trouble.” Reportedly, Affleck’s “workaholic” mentality didn’t sit well with Garner, who is usually home with the pair’s three children, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
Jennifer Garner recently opened up to Yahoo! Parenting about balancing her marriage and parenthood, explaining, “You just go on a ride together because you don’t know who you’re going to be when you first have a baby and you don’t know who [your partner] is going to be. You have to just hang in there while you figure it out — and have a lot of patience for each other.”
Ben Affleck and Garner tied the knot on June 29, 2005 in a private ceremony in Turks and Caicos. (Yes, their 10th anniversary was on Monday.) This was the first marriage for the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” star, while Garner was previously married to actor Scott Foley.
