It’s been nearly two years since Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their split after 10 years of marriage, but according to sources close to the couple, there may be a light at the end of the tunnel.
Garner and Affleck have reportedly called off their divorce for the time being and are working on their marriage together, People reports. Whispers of a reconciliation have been swirling ever since their separation, as the two have been regularly spotted in public together with their three children, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5.
“Jen has called off the divorce,” a source allegedly close to Garner told the magazine. “She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try.”
According to People, the two aren’t officially back together yet, but apparently both Affleck and Garner decided to put the divorce on hold.
The two stars separated in June of 2015 amid rumors that pegged Affleck as the guilty party for an alleged affair with the couple’s nanny. Garner later shot down speculation that extramarital activities had contributed to their split in a refreshingly candid interview for Vanity Fair, explaining that their problems began long before “nannygate.”
Despite high-profile interviews about their decision to divorce, Garner and Affleck have continued to live on their shared Los Angeles property over much of the past 20 months, co-parenting their children and even vacationing around the world together over the holidays.
“There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other,” the source added. “They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents.”
Listen, if these two have the strength to endure years of public scrutiny, a nanny scandal, “Batman v Superman” and still want to be together, more power to them.
The Huffington Post has reached out to Garner’s and Affleck’s representatives and will update this post accordingly.
