Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are getting divorced, according to People magazine.

The A-list couple, who marked 10 years of marriage just yesterday, have three children: Violet, 9; Seraphina, 6; and Samuel, 3.

A joint statement from the couple, according to People, reads:

"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. This will be our only comment on this private family matter. Thank you for understanding."

Affleck and Garner have been plagued in recent weeks by divorce rumors, and sources confirm to the magazine that the couple intends to seek out mediation.
