Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck might be calling off their divorce, several reports reveal, stating the couple are inseparable now that the actor is said to have extended his stay at their California mansion.
Just weeks after her revealing interview with Vanity Fair, Jennifer is said to be living under the same roof with her husband despite having filed for divorce last summer. A source for People reveals that their relationship has definitely improved over the last couple of months; it has been a refreshing breather for both of them, having constantly argued and fought over their differences.

Ben was rumored to have battled a gambling addiction while his alleged affairs with multiple women, including the family’s nanny, Christine Ouzounian, were constantly brought up in multiple magazines.
While the couple never addressed the majority of the claims, Jennifer Garner did state in her Vanity Fair interview that the nanny was not to blame for her decision to separate from Ben, saying that Affleck couldn’t have cheated on her with Christine, since the twosome had already broken up when the affair was said to have happened. In other words, Ben might have hooked up with the nanny, but it would have been after the duo had already decided to call it quits.

Either way, Jennifer Garner seems overjoyed by the fact that her marriage could be saved after all. The actress, who could have finalized her divorce months ago, is clearly weighing her options now that Ben has made every effort to keep the relationship going.
Just last week, Garner and Ben were spotted out and about with their three children, and according to insiders, Ben and Jennifer happy to be in each other’s company again. There was no odd atmosphere; it felt like they were a family again, and the differences that led to their separation last year seemed to have been brushed off.
“Ben and Jen spent Sunday with their kids,” a source revealed. “They had brunch together, Jen then ran errands alone and also attended a charity event. Ben and Jen seemed totally fine. They actually acted like they enjoyed hanging out.”
The insider went on to say, “They were smiling and very friendly. Things definitely seem much better. They also hung out at home over the weekend. The vibe is much happier,” indicating that their romance seems to have drastically improved.
Their happy outings with the kids come just one week after reports confirmed that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were still living together. In fact, it is believed the actor’s bedroom is right next door from Jennifer’s, which many have considered as the duo’s first move in hoping to give their marriage another shot.

Garner and Affleck have been married for 10 years, so the idea to suddenly divorce and give it all up is something that Jennifer isn’t quite ready to do just yet. Talking to Vanity Fair, the 13 Going on 30 actress admits that Ben is the love of her life, stressing that despite having faced some challenging times with him, moving on from a 10-year marriage is extremely difficult.
Perhaps this is Ben’s chance to prove to Jennifer Garner that he is committed to saving their crumbling marriage. He’s already moved back into their home, which is leading to signs that their divorce is bound to be called off. But now that reports allege that the couple is also spending time out in public, it is almost certain that the duo has reconciled.
