The rumors are true: Yet another iteration of “Bennifer” is coming to an end.

In a statement to People Magazine today, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced that they have decided to end their marriage after ten years together. "After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the statement from the couple reads. “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 tabloids have been calling an impending Bennifer split for years, with rumors of marital strife flaring particularly when Ben Affleck referred to their marriage as “work” in his 2013 Oscar acceptance speech, but we’re still sorry to see the split actually come to pass. Plus, it's always a shame to see another great celebrity portmanteau get tossed by the wayside. (Stay strong, Filliam H. Muffman!)
