A year has almost passed since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their shocking divorce, and yet the two are still together.
While the estranged couple gets ready for their 11th anniversary, fans are left wondering about the future of their relationship. Are Affleck and Garner repairing their marriage? And, perhaps even more important, is Garner expecting another child?
For starters, News Everyday reports that Affleck and Garner are currently spending a lot of time together overseas while the actor films his newest project, Justice League: Part One.
Affleck has spent the majority of his time in London, but his family has traveled all over Europe on numerous occasions. This includes special getaways to France and Italy last month.
The family has spent so much time together that their bond has strengthened. All the while, the problems that resulted in their separation last summer has seemingly dissolved.
In fact, despite filing for divorce, Affleck and Garner have yet to finalize the matter. Does this mean they are open to getting back together?
In an interview for a Vanity Fair cover, Garner opened up about what Affleck means to her and clarified reports that Affleck had cheated on her with their nanny.
“He’s the love of my life. What am I going to do about that? He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy,” she stated. “We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce.”
For his part, Celebuzz is reporting that Ben Affleck shares similar sentiments as Garner and left the future of their marriage pretty open.
“Life doesn’t always turn out exactly the way you want. We’re doing our very best and we’re putting our kids first. That’s how we’re focusing on our day-to-day lives. And we don’t know what the future’s going to hold,” Affleck stated. “Each step that we take is one where we prioritize our children and everything else comes second. She’s just so good at doing that and sets such a good example. And that’s a lead that I follow.”
Of course, both of their comments have only fueled rumors even more. While fans continue to speculate on their future together, new reports indicate that Garner might be set to have another child.
“They will continue to live in the house together and have no plans to change that arrangement,” a source revealed. “They are in a really good place right now. A lot of the dust has settled and they have become accustomed to their new life, which is separate but together in a lot of ways.”
To complicate matters even further, MNR Daily reports that Affleck and Garner are not getting ready to fix their marriage. Instead, their recent outings and united front are directly tied to their desire to keep their family as healthy as possible.
“They’re co-parenting and showing the kids Europe while he’s there filming… That’s all it is and they’re happy with this arrangement … They are both taking it one day at a time and trying to stay open-minded about their options.”
According to Parent Herald, Garner may have another man in her life, as well. The actress was recently spotted with a mystery man in Malibu. Although nothing romantic occurred, the two were seen hanging out in the back seat of his SUV.
