We apologize in advance for all the hearts we’re about to break. The following news is deeply upsetting and unfortunately 100 percent true: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner‘s marriage is no more.
The couple just celebrated their 10-year anniversary on Monday. They originally met on set of the 2003 movie Daredevil, fell in love, were quickly married, and are now parents to three kids: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3. And today, they announced to PEOPLE that they’ve officially made the difficult decision to divorce.
The couple released a statement:
“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.”
Affleck and Garner were the couple of all Hollywood couples, but their relationship was often subject to scrutiny. In 2014, Garner told INSTYLE that their relationship had bid farewell to the “courtship” phase. She said at the time that she was OK with that… Apparently that’s no longer the case.
Affleck always spoke highly of Garner and was extremely vocal about how she helped stabilize his life after a nasty breakup with Jennifer Lopez in 2004.
He told Playboy in 2013:
“Getting to know her, falling in love with her and being connected with her gave me a foundation to reach out and say, ‘Okay, I’m going to do Hollywoodland. I’m going to direct Gone Baby Gone.‘ “
“Those were the steps forward I needed to put positive stuff on the board.”
As the couple splits, so do all of the hearts in America. RIP to what we thought was the dream. It’s time we all reevaluate our #RelationshipGoals.
