Ben Af­fleck and Jen­nifer Garner are split­ting af­ter 10 years of mar­riage.

The Os­car win­ner and his wife sent out a joint state­ment on Tues­day af­ter weeks of public spec­u­la­tion on the sta­tus of their mar­riage.

“Af­ter much thought and care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion, we have made the dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion to di­vorce. 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,” the cou­ple said.

Af­fleck will con­tinue to live on the cou­ple’s prop­erty in a sep­a­rate house and the two will con­tinue to co-par­ent their three chil­dren: Vi­o­let Af­fleck, Seraphina Rose El­iz­a­beth Af­fleck and Sa­muel Garner Af­fleck, ac­cord­ing to a per­son who re­quested anonymity be­cause they were not au­tho­rized to speak pub­licly on the mat­ter. The cou­ple also plans to go to a me­di­a­tor to set­tle their di­vorce, the per­son said.
