Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their divorce last year. However, they have since managed to enjoy a cordial relationship. Furthermore, Jennifer and Ben were spotted together several times, thus, rumors indicated that the two might even get back together. It has even been reported that the two actors decided to put the divorce on hold for the moment.
The news was reported by US Weekly, which claimed that Ben and Jennifer were not ready to put an end to their union. So, although the two announced their separation quite some time ago, none of them has filed for divorce. This lead to speculation that the divorce proceedings were delayed by the famous actors.
“Jen mentioned that the divorce was going through very soon, and then a few weeks ago, things changed,” an insider told US Weekly. “It does not seem to be moving in that direction,” the same source explained. Furthermore, ever since their separation, Ben and Jennifer continued to live together, as Ben has reportedly been staying in the guest house on the property where Jennifer and the children’s home is located. Now, it has even been claimed that they live together in the same mansion, although in different rooms.
The insider revealed that Jennifer is said to “still be in love with Ben but doesn’t allow her mind to go there. She just focuses on the kids.” Another insider claimed that the same thing could be said about Ben, who also has troubles moving on. “If it was up to Ben, they would be together. He feels like he can’t live without Jen,” the source clarified.
However, the report was denied by another source, who claimed that the pair have not decided to put their divorce on hold, but they are privately working out the details of their legal separation. The insider said that the two actors have a plan for their legal separation and their lawyers are working out all details. “They were never in a rush to file. This was always the plan,” the insider clarified.
