Citing irreconcilable differences in court documents filed one week ago, Linde is seeking spousal support and joint legal and physical custody of the couple's two young children Jack and Mary.
"This was a mutual decision," Marsden's rep tells PEOPLE. "They are committed to raising their kids together and remain great friends."
"It's always been about being together and keeping the family together," the X-Men and 27 Dresses star, 38, told PEOPLE in 2008 of his then-happy marriage.
"When I'm not working, I want to be home, and that's all I want to do."
