Ben Affleck married Jennifer Garner in a private ceremony at the Parrot Cay resort on the Turks and Caicos Islands, on June 29, 2005, and 10 years and one day later, they announced their divorce! But now Hollywoodlife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that the divorce is on hold because these two can’t quit each other.
There’s been rumors of cheating, drinking, gambling, and more, but somehow Ben Affleck, 43, and Jennifer Garner, 44, want to see their marriage through to the end, according to an insider for the A-list pair. “The Jen and Ben divorce is on hold for now. As soon as it became real they both freaked out and could’t seem to spend any time apart,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. In May, they were even spotted kissing and holding hands in Paris, because that’s what you do when you’re in the middle of an ugly divorce, right?
But it hasn’t been all hand-holding and smooching. It’s taking hard work on both their parts. “It hasn’t been all smooth sailing but they decided the love each other enough to try again. And obviously they are both willing to do anything for their kids,” the source continued. Jen and Ben have three children: daughters Violet, 10, and Seraphina, 7, and son Samuel, 4.
“Jen is not an impulsive woman,” the insider added, “And she’s not totally ready to sign off. She needs to make sure Ben is committed to being a husband and father, so she’s giving him more and more responsibility. So far, he’s stepped up to the plate.”
It sounds like Ben is doing exactly the right thing to get into Jennifer’s good graces, however will it be enough in the long run? We’ll just have to wait and see!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Are Jen and Ben making the right decision or should they just pull the plug and move on?
