It is official. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are divorcing. Almost 10 years to the day. I assume due to legal (read prenup) reasons.
I don’t know if the “Beniffer” can be applied to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, since it was created for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, but I figure why not! Right?
The two did last 10 years, which is 100 years in Hollywood terms. They did have a lot of kids and they were branded as a strong family unity, which is great, even though if it was just a media spin.
Clearly, the couple has been having issues for a long time. I have been told by numerous people who have worked with the couple, partial and in whole, that Ben Affleck was not very nice, was into his gambling and other women…while Jennifer Garner was always amazing.
I don’t pick sides, I don’t even know if the rumors are true, I just know that they made this announcement to People Magazine:
“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. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
