Things just got real for Ben Affleck! According to UsMagazine.com, The actor was seen on July 13th in Santa Monica, California, ringless, this coming not too long after his celebrity divorce announcement with celebrity ex Jennifer Garner. The two recently released a statement that confirmed all of our suspicions that the celebrity couple was heading to splitsville. The star, however, did have his ring on during his first post celebrity break-up appearance at Comic-Con in San Diego on Saturday July 11th. During the panel, Affleck kept it professional and discussed only taking on the legendary role of Batman. He must have had a change of heart since then because now the star is walking around with a bare ring finger!

Cupid’s Advice:

Removing your ring in the midst of divorce can be a sensitive thing, especially if you have kids. Cupid has some advice:

1. No emotional attachment: When you look down at your wedding ring and it’s nothing more to you than jewelry, its time to take it off. A wedding ring is a symbol of love and loyalty and if you no longer feel that with it on, then why have it on at all?
