After two years of separation, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are finally preparing to officially divorce, according to Us Weekly (opens in new tab).

This all comes courtesy of "sources" close to the couple, so take it for what it's worth—but if the reports are to be believed, Garner will be the one filing to make the split official. Affleck has also reportedly moved out of their shared home in Brentwood.

Last year, Garner famously gave a tearjerking interview (opens in new tab) about her relationship with Affleck, whom she has remained close to since the split (opens in new tab), for the sake of their three children, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 4.

"He's the love of my life," she told Vanity Fair (opens in new tab). "What am I going to do about that? He's the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He's just a complicated guy. I always say, 'When his sun shines on you, you feel it.' But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it's cold. He can cast quite a shadow."

Even though their marriage might be coming to an end, Garner and Affleck will always be a big part of each other's lives (opens in new tab) as they co-parent their three children—which they reportedly intend to continue doing in a very hands-on way.

"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," a source reportedly told Us Weekly (opens in new tab). "They are both committed to their family."
