This just in! After 10 years of marriage, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are splitting up. Read on for more details.

According to Daily Mail, the long-term couple has decided to call it quits. It was announced a day  after their tenth wedding anniversary. They have three children together; Violet, Seraphina and Samuel.

“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 out 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 said in a joint statement.

Divorce rumors have been bombarding this couple for months now. National Enquirer OK! Magazine reported that Affleck and Garner’s marriage is rocky. In fact, the outlet claimed that the couple has “already separated and working towards a $150 million divorce.”

These speculations started when the public eye noticed that the couple haven’t been together in several occasions. Affleck was spotted playing poker in Las Vegas alone while Garner was in New York. On Garner’s birthday on April, Affleck was seen in Canada all alone without his wedding ring on. However, just when these speculations are starting to bubble up in the surface, the couple confused us by showing that they’re okay when they were spotted spending time together and with their children in June. At that point, we thought things are okay between the two.

In an interview with Yahoo!,Garner even talked about her marriage in May.

“You just go on a ride together because you don’t know who you’re going to be when you first have a baby and you don’t know who [your partner] is going to be. You have just to hang in there while you figure it out – and have a lot of patience for each other,” Garner said.

Just like that folks, love died and I thought these two are going to last forever!
