According to a new report, Jennifer Garner is preparing to file official divorce papers nearly two years after her split from husband Ben Affleck.
"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," a source close to the couple told Us Weekly. "They are both committed to their family." A different insider revealed that the Argo star had moved out of their shared Brentwood home.
The duo first released a joint statement about their breakup on June 30, 2015 — one day after their 10th wedding anniversary. "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce," they said at the time. "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. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."
The pair share three children: daughters Violet, 11, and Seraphina, 8, and son Samuel, 4.

Despite their split, Jen only had nice things to say about her ex in a February 2016 interview with Vanity Fair. "I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him. And I would go back and remake that decision," she shared.
"I ran down the beach to him, and I would again. You can’t have these three babies and so much of what we had. He’s the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy. I always say, ‘When his sun shines on you, you feel it.’ But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it’s cold. He can cast quite a shadow."
We're gonna miss Bennifer.
