Ben and Jen are handling their divorce in a VERY unexpected way

After their divorce announcement earlier this week, it was reported that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner would remain living on the same property, but that's not all they're doing together.

Ben and Jen promised they would remain united for the sake of their three children and they seem to be going out of their way to do just that. E! News confirmed last night that the whole family is currently on holidays together in the Bahamas.

The couple are keen to work together to co-parent their children, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.

This holiday was probably a long time planned and seems like the perfect getaway for the family as the news of the divorce dominates headlines this week. 

A source told Us Weekly that Ben and Jen were waiting until the end of the school year before making their big announcement. "They got the kids out of L.A. as soon as school was out," the source tells Us. "[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 announced their divorce on Tuesday after ten years of marriage and a source close to the pair told E! News that they have been separated for about 10 months. 

This pattern of dropping the news bombshell then jetting off is one we have definitely seen before. Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow similarly headed off on holidays immediately after releasing a statement about their divorce in 2014.
