Jennifer Garner is ready to move on from Ben Affleck, having reportedly stressed that she wants to start dating again.
Following the ups and downs she’s faced since filing for divorce from the Argo star in 2015, it was revealed earlier this year that the couple was moving forward with their plans to part ways having originally halted the process.
With reports now claiming that Ben is seeing Lindsay Shookus, Jennifer Garner is said to have made it no secret that she’s also wanting to start seeing people again.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, the news of Affleck and Lindsay enjoying date nights didn’t upset Jennifer Garner since she’s no longer with the father-of-three — he’s free to date whomever he likes, the source explains.
However, seeing her ex-husband with another woman is still something that Jennifer Garner has to get used to.
It’s evidently clear at this point that the marriage Garner shared with Affleck is over, and since there is no chance that they will ever want to reconcile with one another, the actress wants to see what’s out there in the hopes that she’ll find true love once again.
One of the problems Jennifer Garner knows she’ll be facing is the time management between dating and raising three children.
With Ben constantly being on the road to shoot movies all over the world, Jennifer Garner tends to care for their kids while their father is working.
It will be extremely difficult for Jennifer to make time to not only start dating again, but also raise her kids at the same time. When she was with Ben, it was evidently easier because she was already married and wasn’t chasing for love while parenting three children.
Every time I visit #DRC I’m amazed by the Congolese people. Their hard work and commitment to improving their country is truly inspiring. Last week, I was back in Goma visiting with coffee cooperatives and community-based organizations supported by my org @easterncongo. It was very exciting to see that hard work, coupled with sustainable investment, is paying off. A special thank you to @starbucks for their commitment to socially conscious investment in Congo, and Heal Africa for providing these communities with essential health care services.
All in all, however, the outlet claims that Jennifer Garner is happy how things have turned out between her and Ben.
It goes without saying that the former couple is still on speaking terms. They get along wonderfully well, and the fact that a new woman has reportedly entered Affleck’s life will certainly not change the friendship that Jennifer Garner has been able to form with the Hollywood hunk.
Are you happy to hear that Jennifer Garner wants to start dating again?
