It's Over! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Confirm Divorce

Their marriage has been the subject of scrutiny for many years, and now the rumours are officially true. The notoriously private celeb couple have now called it quits on their 10-year marriage.

Countless paparazzi shots of the couple with their children looking clearly in discontent, had done nothing to quell rumours of an impending divorce.

Affleck, 42, and Garner, 43, have just announced they are getting a divorce after reaching their 10-year anniversary this week. The celebrity couple have three children together: Violet Anne, 9, Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 6, and Samuel Garner, 3.

"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce," the couple said in a joint 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."

Ben famously addressed the couple's marriage and the hard work required, on a rare occurrence during his acceptance speech for film Argo, at the 2013 Academy Awards. "I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases," he told Garner. "It's good. It is work, but it's the best kind of work and there's no one I'd rather work with."

Ben and Jennifer met as costars on the the set of their 2003 film Daredevil.
