Ben Affleck And Jennifer Garner Call Off Their Divorce!
While we often hear of celebrity couples divorcing in Hollywood it’s quite rare to discover those who decide to give their marriage a second chance.
Reports out of from LA LA land this week say Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are doing just that! The couple have decided to put their divorce on hold to try and work on their marriage.
The actors, both 44, announced their separation back in June 2015 and while they’re not officially back together just yet, they won’t be moving forward with their divorce either.
“Jen has called off the divorce,” a source close to Garner said. “She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try. There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents.”
While the couple have been officially separated for two years that hasn’t stopped them from continuing to do things together as a family. In fact just a few weeks ago, Garner and Affleck hosted a party at their home in LA for their son Samuel’s 5th birthday along with daughters Violet, 11 and Seraphina,8 and a few close friends.
“The girls had wrapped presents for Sam, including superhero toys. They had a cake. Everyone seemed happy,” says the source.
Family is super important to the couple who have remained close following their break up. So close in fact that they still live in the same house (although Affleck lives in a separate wing) and they spend most of their time co-parenting their kids. They’ve even taken family vacations together with their recent one being in Montana late last year.
“They want to keep the family together,” the source close to the couple says.
Affleck relishes his role as a dad and would love nothing more than to have the family back together again. He takes great pleasure in the daily routine of parenting like making lunches and taking the kids to school. “I like taking my kids to school in the morning and dropping them off and having them know their dad is there. That feels good,” the actor said.
Friends close to Garner say Affleck has made a tremendous effort to better himself and truly wants to stay married- he most definitely does not want to get divorced!
We are truly optimistic these two can work things out- especially since by the sound of things, its what they both really want!
