Sit down. Your father and I need to talk to you about something. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are getting divorced.

You've probably heard by now that America's daredevils are ending their marriage after 10 years. Surely, you've considered how this will affect your own life (not at all in any way). Now, let's take a moment to look back at some key moments in their relationship, as demonstrated by facial expressions taken completely out of context.

Ah, so this is what it means to have a "partner," they thought. And this is what it means to actually be happy. He loved to put his arm all the way around her neck like she was in a chokehold and kiss her; she loved to make a gagging face as an inside joke.

On July 4th, Ben went to a cheerleading competition that Jen was competing in. Right before she went on, he quietly told her that he didn't understand if Sydney Bristow was loyal to the CIA or SD-6.

Jen eventually became so constantly frustrated with Ben that she tried to call a taxi to take her home in the middle of the "Argo" premiere, but she was so upset she forgot handphones haven't been invented yet.

Then, during the 16th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards, Ben leaned over and whispered in Jen's ear, "Seriously, is the girl in "Alias" a good guy or bad guy?" Jen didn't know why, but that was the last straw.
