Ben Affleck Still Doesn’t Want to Divorce Jennifer Garner
According to a People source who’s friends with Garner, “They’re still figuring things out. Ben still doesn’t want the divorce and he might actually get his way.”
Affleck and Garner have continued living together for the sake of co-parenting their three children, Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4. They’ve been spotted hanging out on weekends, even vacationing together and this spring, they moved to London as a family (sharing a rented a house) while Affleck is filming Justice League.
“She had the best time in Europe with Ben and the kids,” the friend adds. “She seemed much happier when she returned to L.A. Jen went from being very adamant that a divorce would happen to instead avoiding any divorce talk.”
Another source added, “There is no rush to file [for divorce]. They are enjoying life where they are right now. Nothing has changed [in their relationship]. They’re still all about putting the kids first.”
They were recently spotted in L.A. taking their kids to a 4th of July parade. An eyewitness told People, “[Ben] and [Jennifer] were sitting together watching the parade. They were not being affectionate. Ben and Violet were holding hands, and Ben was smiling watching the parade and walking around the community.”
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time.”
