Why Did Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck File for Divorce? 'It Was Just Time'

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck filed for divorce on Thursday (April 13), almost two year after originally announcing their split.

“They always planned to divorce despite what people said,” a source told People. “If you look at their first statement it says divorce not separate. They just did it the way they wanted to and did what was best for their kids. There was no catalyst, it was just time. Nothing has changed, they are and still will be putting their kids first.”

Another source adds the split was “super amicable.”

Ben and Jennifer share three kids: Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, almost 5.
