One day after their 10th anniversary, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have announced that they're splitting, reports People and AP. "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce," says 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." Affleck, 42, and Garner, 43, have three kids: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3. TMZ reports that they'll work with a mediator to split their estate, and make the divorce official after that.
