Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner File for Divorce One Day after their 10th Wedding Anniversary!
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the couple said in a joint statement.
Affleck, 42, and Garner, 43, have three children together. They said in their statement that they will “go forward with love and friendship,” and with a commitment to “co-parenting” their children.
“This will be our only comment on this private family matter. Thank you for understanding,” they said.
The actors have both appeared in two films together: “Pearl Harbor” in 2001 and “Daredevil in 2003.” Affleck previously dated Jennifer Lopez, while Garner was formerly married to actor Scott Foley.
The couple married on June 29, 2005, in a private ceremony in the Turks and Caicos, a couple of months after they made their first public appearance together as a couple during the 2004 World Series. The series, which was won by Affleck’s team, the Boston Red Sox, was credited for their marriage by Garner.
