It's officially over. Their divorce was finalized last night at Jen's house

October 5, 2018

It's the divorce that was 3 years in the making and now that Ben Affleck has completed an extended rehab, the timing must have seemed right. Their lawyers and a private judge made a house call last night so they could finalize their split absent the photogs that continue to hound them. Thirteen years of marriage and 3 beautiful children later, they are single once more.

It really seems like they've got that co-parenting thing down. After Ben spent 30 days in rehab, the whole family went to church together. That's a lot to be grateful for. Ben had this to say about his addiction to alchohol:

“Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle. Because of that, one is never really in or out of treatment. It is full-time commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family.”

Did you think that after such a long separation that they might be able to work it out and stay together? It seemed like a possibility. Having it all done and finalized must inspire be both relief and sadness. No one likes to be in limbo, but endings are still sad. On the bright side, we can now be excited for Jen to move on and start tackling the prospect of dating whenever she's ready.

But first, a look back.
