Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner skip town with kids amid divorce news

Still putting an united front! Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner decided they were better off temporarily leaving the West Coast altogether amid their divorce announcement.

An insider told Us Weekly that the duo and their 3 children are spending time in the Bahamas where they also have a home.

"They got the kids out of L.A. as soon as school was out," the source said. "The Bahamas is a place they’ve been going to for years that’s very private and special for their kids. When either of them have had work commitments they have been leaving to go fulfill them."

The couple confirmed earlier this week that they are divorcing after 10 years of marriage.

"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. 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 said in a joint statement, one day after their 10th wedding anniversary. "This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."

A source said the duo's divorce would be more like Gwyneth Paltrow's and Chris Martin's "conscious uncoupling" rather a legal battle.

"They feel like they have to be mature adults for their children's sake and that they will figure out the healthiest way to co-parent," said a source close to the duo. "They want the kids lives to stay the same and to not have to change just because they aren't going to be married anymore."
