Ben Affleck’s surprising divorce with Jennifer Garner is reportedly now on hold. Are they planning on salvaging their marriage and getting back together?
According to Hollywood Life, going through with the split was a lot harder than both stars ever imagined. Once Affleck and Garner made the divorce announcement, they quickly realized they couldn’t live apart for much longer.
“The Jen and Ben divorce is on hold for now. As soon as it became real they both freaked out and couldn’t seem to spend any time apart,” an insider told the outlet.
The couple was spotted on a vacation in Paris back in May. Fans caught them holding hands and even kissing during the romantic getaway.
Although it appears as though Affleck and Garner are back together, repairing their marriage was hard work. Fortunately, their children were enough motivation to keep them going.
“It hasn’t been all smooth sailing, but they decided the love each other enough to try again. And obviously they are both willing to do anything for their kids,” the source continued.
Garner and Affleck have been married for ten years now. They have three children together, including Violet (10), Seraphina (7), and Samuel (4).
Despite a willingness to reconcile, Garner still has a few worries about her future with the Batman v Superman star.
“Jen is not an impulsive woman,” the insider shared. “And she’s not totally ready to sign off. She needs to make sure Ben is committed to being a husband and father, so she’s giving him more and more responsibility. So far, he’s stepped up to the plate.”
According to Australian Network News, Affleck met Garner while working on the movie Pearl Harbor. The officially tied the knot in 2005 and were one of Hollywood’s best couples until their shocking divorce last year.
The pair announced their separation one day following their 10th anniversary.
Following the divorce confirmation, rumors surfaced that Ben Affleck had an affair with their children’s nanny, Christine Ouzounian. Since then, Garner has cleared up the matter and revealed that the nanny did not factor into their split.
She did, however, confirm that Affleck slept with Ouzounian, though the affair happened after they were living separately.
In the wake of their divorce, Affleck and Garner decided to make the transition easier for their kids and co-parented. In fact, Affleck still lived in the same house as Garner and continued to perform his duties as a father.
Meanwhile, it has been a year since the two announced their split and the divorce has yet to be finalized. Does this mean that they are planning on getting back together in the near future?
Unfortunately, neither Affleck nor Garner have officially commented on the status of their relationship. Until the divorce is finalized or they get back together, fans will have to wait to see what happens.
In the meantime, Hollywood Life reports that Affleck was recently spotted picking up his daughter from a summer camp in Los Angeles.
The Justice League star was seen spending quality time with Violet, who attended The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth’s summer camp in L.A.
The recent sighting confirms that Affleck is still very much a part of his daughter’s lives. Whether or not his is a clear indication that his marriage is on the right track is still unclear.
Either way, Affleck is still living with his family in their mansion in L.A. Considering how he and Garner are still co-parenting and living under the same roof, it is clear that they are still on friendly terms with each other.
Hopefully, the couple stays together and provides more stability for their adorable children.
