Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, both 44, are getting divorced for real, according to Us Weekly. The couple announced their split almost two years ago, but Jennifer Garner officially filed for divorce on Friday. Sorry, Bennifer fans (meaning Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, not Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, the original Bennifer. Technically there's still hope for those two, I guess?).

People get divorced all the time, but it's always sadder when there are children involved, and in this case, there are three—Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 4.

Affleck and Garner got married in 2005, after meeting in 2001 (on the set of Pearl Harbor) and falling in love in 2003 (while making Daredevil). Then announced their split in June 2015, but they didn't move ahead with the divorce until now. For awhile it seemed like maybe they'd get back together, but apparently that's not the case.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner will continue to co-parent their children, though. A source close to the family told Us Weekly, "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. They are both committed to their family."
