Wait, we thought they were headed for a reconciliation?!
Jennifer Garner plans to file for divorce from Ben Affleck, nearly two years after they announced their separation, Us Weekly reports. The couple announced they were ending their ten year marriage in June 2015, but since then have spent a significant amount of time together with the kids, leading some to believe they'd made the decision to work through their issues.
"No matter what happens, Ben and Jen are committed to raising their family as one unit and will continue to do so as it has worked for them. They are both committed to their family," a source dished to the mag.
The Batman actor has officially moved out of their shared Pacific Palisades home, despite reports that he had moved back in as they attempted to repair their relationship.
Their split came as a shock to many, but apparently they'd been at odds and in couple's therapy "for years" before making the heartbreaking decision to go their separate ways.
"They were going to divorce when Sam was born, but you know how it is — baby comes and solves the issues for a bit, but it's just a Band-Aid. It hasn't been working for ages. Ben truly wanted his idea of family life and the idea of family he had growing up in Boston, so he stayed in it longer than he wanted to because of the kids and the idea of family. But he couldn't save it," a source told the mag at the time.
The pair met on the set of Pearl Harbor in 2001, fell in love while starring in 2003's Daredevil, and married in 2005. They are parents to children Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 4.
What a sad development! We thought they had a chance!
