Confirmed: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Announce Divorce After 10 Years
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have announced they will be divorcing after 10 years of marriage.
Following speculation the couple were having marital problems and would announce their divorce before their 10 year anniversary that was on Monday, June 29, 2015, People Magazine, who were rumored to be courting the couple for the exclusive news, has broken the news with 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.”
The couple have been making headlines over the past few weeks, saying they were headed for divorce. When no announcement was made, we thought the couple were out of the woods. It seems that they decided to go their separate ways after all. Affleck was rumored to have been stepping out on Garner and Garner was said to have spent Mother’s Day with her parents and children and not her husband. The couple tried to show a united front when the news hit the internet of the troubled marriage, but they looked miserable and couldn’t cover up the fact that neither of them were happy. When the moving van was spotted outside of their home and the couple claimed they were renovating, few people believe the reports.
Whatever happened between the two, we are hoping their three children Violet, Seraphina and Samuel are okay.
Do you think they will get the privacy they are seeking or will we read the blaring headlines about the timing, the amount of the divorce settlement, who Ben is stepping out and how Jen is mourning the loss of their marriage?
One thing is for sure, Ben will be painted as the villain in the relationship with Jennifer being the victim.
We will keep you posted with all the details.
