Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Are Reportedly Calling Off Their Divorce

At least for now.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are giving their marriage another shot, sources close to the couple tell People (opens in new tab).


"Jen has called off the divorce (opens in new tab)," a source close to Garner told the magazine. "She really wants to work things out (opens in new tab) with Ben. They are giving things another try."

The pair have been separated since June 2015, following reports that Affleck had an affair with their children's nanny. (Garner told Vanity Fair (opens in new tab) last year that the nanny "had nothing to do with our decision to divorce.") Affleck and Garner had been married for 10 years.

But since news of the split, the couple has been spotted together with their three kids, Violet, 11, Seraphina, 8, and Samuel, 5. Just a couple of weeks ago, they hosted a birthday party for their son.

According to the People report, both Affleck and Garner are eager for a reconciliation.

"There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other," the source said. "They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents."
