On their first “independent” Independence Day in nearly a decade, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner will be together.
The estranged couple, who announced their divorce on Tuesday, were spotted vacationing in the Bahamas with their three children, nine-year-old Violet, six-year-old Seraphina and three-year-old Samuel.

When announcing their split, the couple made it clear their children remain their priority as they stated, “We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children.”
As Life & Style previously reported, the 42-year-old Oscar winner is living in a separate area — complete with his own bedroom — within the home he shares with his estranged wife, 43, because he intends on going for joint custody of their children when the time comes.

Even though they are under the same roof, the source adds, “They can barely be in the same room without fighting.”
