Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have announced that, they’ve taken a difficult decision to end their 10 years of marriage–and they are doing so drama free.

The couple are expected to share joint custody of their children—Affleck will continue to live on the couple’s property in a separate house as they work through their separation with a mediator, according to reports.

The couple have been married since 2005 and have three children between the ages of three and nine.

They said; “we go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children.”

Affleck, 42, plays Batman in the forthcoming Batman v Superman film—and the soon to be ex-wife, Garner, 43, has had roles in Juno and Dallas Buyers Club.

Affleck has enjoyed success as both an actor and director. He won an Oscar for best screenplay for Good Will Hunting in 1997, which he wrote with Matt Damon, and another for best picture in 2013 for Argo, which he starred in and directed.

Garner, herself a successful actress, won a Golden Globe for her role as a CIA agent Sydney Bristow in the TV series Alias.

The couple started dating shortly after meeting on the set of Daredevil in 2003, in which they both played superheroes. They married two years later in the Turks and Caicos Islands, and their 10th wedding anniversary was on Monday.
