One of the most loved couples in Hollywood has announced they are to divorce after ten years of marriage.
Named “power couple” by the tabloids, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s every moved was watched, photographed and documented.
Time journalist Dan D'Addario summarised their parting as the end of an era for celebrity news, writing: "The Garner-Affleck storyline, in the celebrity press, was one that proved no matter how hard celebrities try to be boring - no matter how close to 100 per cent of their time they spent on couples’ trips to Starbucks - celebrities will always exist as templates onto which we can project our darker impulses."
Garner and Affleck met on the set of Pearl Harbour in 2001, began dating in 2004, married in 2005, and had three children together. Their intent to divorce was just a day after their anniversary, when the couple said they would go forward "with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children".
