Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are divorced, and love might officially be dead.

TMZ reported the following details Thursday:

As we reported, they did the divorce without hiring a lawyer. They used Laura Wasser, who is a lawyer, but she didn’t operate in that capacity for them. Wasser mediated the entire divorce.

Ben and Jen will share joint custody of their three kids. They also agreed to meet with a coparenting therapist on a monthly basis for a minimum of six months.

As we reported, they did not have a prenup and have agreed on the property split.

Damn, this has been getting dragged out seemingly forever, and now it’s completely done. The whole not having a prenup thing is absolutely fascinating to me. Yes, I know both of them are rich and famous, but it’s mind-boggling to me they wouldn’t have one. (RELATED: Ben Affleck Breaks Silence For First Time Since Entering Rehab)

I guess not everybody with cash in the bank is as eager as others to sign on the dotted line.

Hopefully, Affleck continues to get the help he needs when it comes to sobriety and getting clean. You just always hate to see people struggle with addiction, and his fight has very much happened in the public eye.

As for Garner, she’s been a star for ages, and I highly doubt this divorce will slow her down one bit. As I’ve said before, I was a fan way back in the “Alias” days.

Let’s just hope the kids make out alright, both of them move on and continue to have wildly successful careers. At this point, that’s all you can hope for.
