Bennifer 2.0 is no more! Although it seems like it took longer than it took to cram Ben into his Batsuit, the Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner divorce was actually pretty painless and amicable, compared to others we’ve seen. Especially if you ignore that whole waiting for Ben to dry out business (twice!).
According to TMZ, a judge has signed off on the final documents in their divorce, and the two are now single and free to pursue any Playboy Bunnies or Robot Hamburger Men they choose. And they did it all without hiring any lawyers! Well, they did hire Laura Wasser, Divorce Attorney To The Stars, but she only acted as a mediator.
I know it felt like a century since Jennifer originally filed for divorce, but it was less than a year ago, in April of 2017 (that’s 7 months after Brangelina). And while there was a lot of back and forth, Ben and Jen actually acted like grown-ups who give a damn.
Ben and Jen will share joint custody of their 3 kids. They also agreed to meet with a co-parenting therapist on a monthly basis for a minimum of 6 months.
As we reported, they did not have a prenup and have agreed on the property split.
Look what God can do if one or both parties does their level best to minimize the damage. Sure, their kids are still going to eventually find pictures of Bloated Ben on the internet, but at least they might be able to have a meaningful discussion about them when the time is right.
So pop the Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider and give a shout of “hooray!”. Hopefully this will be the last time we’ll have to talk about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner in the same post again. They’re officially Dlisted Detached!
