    Wow! If they can’t make it, who can? Everyone gets a divorce these days, the whole concept of soulmates and true love is lost somewhere between the lines.

  • LiiL

    Nowaaay… my jaw is on the floor right now. I was always thinking about them like THE COUPLE.

  • Arx

    Wow this is sad! Oh well, at least Ben can finally get married to Matt Damon! hmmm interesting timing for the divorce… lol

  • FrenchGirl

    What no-surprise!

  • Jenny from the flop

    omg thats so sad, i thought it was just rumors all along. :(

  • Zoee

    Good luck to both of them, people has the right to finish relationship if you don´t feel happy

  • Patty Cake

    The couple shared this news with Just Jared? Oh, I don’t think so.
    You guys found this somewhere else and copied it.

  • Scarlett

    Very sad, but I’m not surprised at all, sadly. And that statement was a general press release, not one just for this site.

  • buttercream

    Not surprised. Jen can do sooooooo much better than that jerk. Maybe JLo will take him back?

  • bbm

    Ben can maybe find another Jennifer

  • Kwit

    This is not surprising. He’s been gambling, boozing and cheating on her for years. She also clearly did all the hard work as a parent. She made the mistake too many women make out thinking they can ~change~ the bad boy. His PR team are going to be busy over the next few months

  • quest

    where the world is rolling??? no values? no love? can’t they live amicably? very sad… and children have to suffer

  • Chelsea

    We could always outlaw shotgun weddings.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    He’ll be paying out a whole lot of money for many years to come.

  • FanGirlMode: ON

    Sure, that’s how Just Jared gets 95% of it’s news. That or it’s all pre-arranged with publicists to look “candid”.

  • SquidBillie

    This has been a long time coming. He’s a serial cheater, and she finally woke up.

  • SquidBillie

    From what the blinds have been saying, she’s been doing just that for some time.

  • lshelton22

    Wow.

  • Welly

    Haven’t seen either of them out together in la for a while. Ususally see jen alone. Haven’t seen jen out for couple weeks know. Hated Ben in the first place. Not a surpirse.

  • FrenchGirl

    She is in Canada for a movie and 3 weeks they were photographed together with their kids.

    it was over when Affleck dropped Garner’s birthday and Mother’s Day

  • FrenchGirl

    I think it’s him who finally convinced her to divorce for the kids’well .they are unhappy together

  • Guest

    Very interesting lesson in public relations. They’d been managing this story before it even broke. The pap walks to the farmers market were arranged so it looked like they were “working through it,” that Ben didn’t just dump her coldheartedly.

    The truth is that this was probably sealed up about a month ago and they’d made the decision to file then. Why? People usually has a good source and checks its sources, and the couple did not set things straight.

    Poor Jen; she made the mistake most women make at some point: trying to reform the bad boy. Only thing is, she had three babies with him!

    I don’t usually trash on troubled souls but the way Ben Affleck made it known he didn’t like being married (“hard work” to describe marriage? In an Oscars speech? Get a grip!) in public was pathetic and immature. Jen Garner is an angel for putting up with him and she’d better get half.

  • Delores Pauldo

    So sad. Both seen like a good couple really enjoyed seeing them being together.

  • shoes4life

    This is truly sad to hear. Not sure who’s at fault but both will soon find out it is cheaper and better to work on your marriage, especially after 10+ years together. I feel for Jen because she will have a harder time finding a suitable new mate with children at her age.

  • 84hurts

    I remember their ice bucket challenge video. That was so cool. They were my fav. Celeb couple

    From time to time he got more addicted to alcohol gambling and girls.

  • Casey C

    While Im not 100% surprised, I’m still sad for them – was hoping they’

    d make it.

  • shoes4life

    Well, cue in J-Lo! She’s been waiting for this news. A woman can only take so much of another woman especially an ex harping about her feeling of her husband. Casper ass will truly be ghost now.

  • https://www.tumblr.com/blog/themoulinblue Kary

    this is really sad

  • Nicola

    Given the years of rumors regarding his behavior, this is one of the least shocking divorce announcements in Hollywood.

  • person

    I am not surprised at all. I always noticed the way he didn’t really look at her- he never looked at her like she is his beloved. For years I noticed this. I am not surprised. He will find someone much prettier. Probably date for a while have lots of sex and fun- and then settle down again. She will probably be single for longer than him but find someone not famous eventually.

  • AK

    omg i spit all the water when i suddenly see this !!!! so sad :(

  • Maria

    Just sad. Hollywood sucks. It’s impossible to have a normal life. Good luck to them, and kudos for being good parents.

  • millerz

    Really sad about this, not because I have a false idea of a perfect marriage or that we really don’t know what goes on behind closed doors but that I genuinely like both of them and were really rooting for them to last :( I am not a supporter of people who “stay together for the kids” because that does more harm than good in the long run. Their kids deserve to see their parents happy and loved the way they should. I know they did what’s best for their family but I’m still sad for them. Wishing them nothing but the best and that the media will leave their kids alone!!

  • Mimignyc

    Jen was more in love with him than Ben. I know I should not be happy when they divorced but Jen cheated in her first marriage too. What goes around comes around.

  • Baseliner

    i never understood how hollywood couples got divorced. i mean you don’t have to see each other every single day and if you feel like cheating get a film role with a lot of sex in it.

  • dalovelee

    He be another Johnny Depp find some younger actress and marry her and then start making a complete fool of himself. No doubt Jennifer held that marriage, family and him together and put her career on the slow burner while he directed films..Now he’s going for glory as Batman and will be hitting on any young thing that throws themselves at him..I hope she finds someone who loves and appreciates her. Let him spend his days and nights at a poker table.

  • Guest

    Sad for their family!! Hope the tabloids respect their privacy but it won’t happen, so be strong!

  • Leyzzle S

    This is fu**** up! Nobody stays together. SAD SAD SAD!
    That’s why I try to never fall in love. They were a family, they have almost everything to stay together forever. It’s not like they were a couple of young and wild kids like Ariana Grande and Big Sean or Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, who have a lot to live and learn yet and were just about to fall apart all the time. They were a damn couple with kids. Wish them the best. But this is sad.

  • SoCal Indi

    I went back and looked at all the old JJ articles and they were apart a lot!

  • Carmen

    Sad. Why are they giving up? :( Too bad. I feel bad for the kids.

  • memyself&i76

    Oh well such as life as long a happy. It really isn’t any or my or anyone else business really

  • TheresaCTanner
  • HH

    Oh wow, this is so unexpected (Saw it coming), I had no idea this was going to happen to them (saw the signs a while ago). I am completely speechless that another Hollywood couple is headed for divorce (Not really shocked, surprised when they stay together). I just hope they will be left alone and be allowed to go through this with dignity (Not a chance, they will be hounded every chance to make a good story and to sling mud for the divorce proceedings).

  • norah mackenzie

    i wish that i could say that i was shocked but tbh it was more like waiting than anything else. I hope they sort it out and move on

  • EstellaFSharpless

    …………….Feel Freedom justjared…….

    ……………….. Find Get More </b

  • Exposed

    Terribly sad. Even sadder that they were bullied into giving a statement about a private matter. In the public eye or not, not every detail needs to be known. They seem like such a lovely couple, such a shame. Ben Affleck is a fool if he lets her get away. He will never find a better one. Sadly, you think divorce ends the fighting, but little do you know it is just beginning. Raising kids out of 2 houses is so hard.

  • xyz

    Clearly? So u were there and know it all?

  • xyz

    Their marriage died long ago, now it has just become officially so. And the world didnt stop turning…. More proof that marriage and kids arent for everyone. DEFINITELY

  • Mat

    tbh she deserves better

  • alex

    the oscar’s course……..
