Jennifer Garner could be refusing to sign off on the divorce papers because she’s afraid of what will happen to her Hollywood career when she parts ways with Ben Affleck, it has been alleged.
According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, the mother of three has stalled the divorce process that she initially filed last summer. Reports first claimed that it was all down to the supposed fact that Jennifer Garner wanted to see if she can save the marriage and build up enough trust to reconcile with Affleck, who was alleged to have cheated on the actress with the family’s nanny, Christine Ouzounian.
But in recent interviews, Jennifer has made it clear that she and Affleck are nothing more than good friends that are co-parenting their children together, E! Online affirms. Of course, the fact that Ben is still living with Jennifer and the children would suggest otherwise.

Regardless of why the twosome are still living together, Celeb Dirty Laundry quotes Us Magazine revealing how Garner, Affleck, and the kids recently celebrated Ben’s birthday at Montana’s Yellowstone Club, where everything seemed fine until Jennifer demanded a separate bedroom.
“There was a cake and they did the usual stuff: hiking and playing outside. They wanted to be together as a family. Although they didn’t sleep in the same room. And they are not getting back together.”
CDL is under the impression that this heavily insinuates to the idea that Jennifer Garner is more than happy to put up a positive image in front of the photographers when out and about with Ben, but in the privacy of their own home, she has made it clear that the duo’s romance is officially over.
If that is the case, why has Jennifer Garner not pulled the plug on her ten-year marriage?
The celebrity gossip outlet is convinced that it’s all down to the couple’s Hollywood reputation. While Ben Affleck has already secured himself a good paying role as Batman for at least three follow-up movies, Jennifer isn’t that fortunate with her own career.

Could Jennifer really be fearing that her Hollywood career could come to an end without directors knowing that she’s still married to Ben? Affleck is quite a respectable figure in the film industry, with recent confirmation that he’s also expected to direct the next Batman sequel.
Celeb Dirty Laundry adds that it’s confusing to think that Jennifer is holding out on the divorce process, yet doesn’t see herself being anything other than close pals with Ben Affleck, adding that her intentions must be related to her fears of losing out on her perfect Hollywood image.
Earlier this year, it was revealed how Jennifer decided to let Ben Affleck move back into the family’s $18 million Pasadena mansion, giving the impression that they were on the verge of working things out in the hopes of reconciling.

But new reports have suggested that the marriage is over; Jennifer Garner has tried her best but has evidently realized that going their separate ways is the best for both of them. With that in mind, it’s still puzzling for fans to understand why the couple is still living together and why the actress won’t sign off on the divorce.
What do you think? Is Jennifer Garner scared of losing her credibility in Hollywood?
