Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are ending their 10-year marriage. Although they will file for divorce, it won’t be done immediately. They are working things out with a mediator and business managers. The divorce will be filed when all of the property and custody issues are resolved.
We’re told the divorce is amicable and Ben and Jen will share joint custody of their 3 children, ranging in age from 3 to 9. The couple says, “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.”
