Hollywood couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are divorcing after 10 years of marriage.

Following weeks of speculation, the couple issued a joint statement to American celebrity website TMZ.

"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce," they said.

"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 couple would have celebrated their 10-year wedding anniversary on Monday.

The couple married after meeting on the set of Daredevil in 2003.
