Are Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner calling off their plans for divorce?
According to a recent report, Ben Affleck and his wife of 11 years have decided to give their marriage another chance and begin living as a family once again.
As Gossip Cop revealed on October 2, Ben Affleck reportedly moved back into the Pacific Palisades home he shared with Jennifer Garner during their marriage and was dedicated to doing whatever it took to make their marriage work. The rumor also claimed that Ben Affleck was sleeping in the guest house as he and Garner attempted to mend their relationship.
Although Ben Affleck is currently living in the guest house of their Los Angeles home, Gossip Cop shot down the false report and confirmed that the actor never moved out when they split. Despite announcing plans for divorce in June of last year, around the time of their 10-year wedding anniversary, Affleck continued to live at their residence for the sake of their three children, Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4.

Since calling it quits on their marriage, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have dedicated themselves to making their co-parenting relationship work and while living together post-split seems like a tough situation, it appears to be working great for their family.
In a recent interview, Ben Affleck spoke of his co-parenting relationship with Garner and revealed that it is his wife who excels at math.
“I was doing math homework last night,” Ben Affleck revealed to E! News last week. “When I’m there, you’re stuck with your parents helping you with your homework. Jen [Garner]’s very good at math [too]. So far, my eldest kid is in fifth grade and they haven’t passed me yet. But I feel like in seventh or eighth grade I’m going to start worrying that they’re going to lose me.”
Garner also spoke of parenting a short time ago, telling People Magazine that the month of September is crazy for her and her family.
“Everything shifts. It’s crazy town. I always feel like September is bananas, doing initial meetings, meetings for room mom, field trips. It’s crazy, but good,” Garner told People Magazine, according to a report by the International Business Times on October 1.

While Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner told the press they would be ending their marriage over a year ago, the couple has yet to file documents for divorce and in July, it was alleged that they had put off their split.
“[Jennifer Garner] mentioned that the divorce was going through very soon, and then a few weeks ago, things changed,” a source close to the actress told Us Weekly. “It does not seem to be moving in that direction… Jen seems to still be in love with Ben but doesn’t allow her mind to go there. She just focuses on the kids.”
“If it was up to [Ben Affleck], they would be together. He feels like he can’t live without Jen,” a second source told the magazine.
Although multiple reports have claimed that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are on the verge of a reunion, a source close to Affleck insisted to Us Weekly that their lawyers are working on their divorce privately.
Earlier this year, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were rumored to be getting back together after Garner and their kids joined Affleck in London, where he was filming Justice League. The family was also seen together in Venice, Italy, and in Paris, France.
