Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck Put Divorce on Hold (Report)

Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck Put Divorce on Hold (Report)

Are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck calling off their divorce? That’s what one source is saying.

“Jen has called off the divorce,” a source close to the 44-year-old actress told People. “She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try.”

“There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents,” the source added. “Ben is making a big effort to take care of himself. They are not back together, but there seems to be hope. Jen is hoping they can stay married. Ben doesn’t want a divorce either.”

Ben and Jennifer have remained close since the announcement of their split years ago – they have often been seen photographed together. The whole family was reportedly together to celebrate their son Samuel‘s fifth birthday. “The girls had wrapped presents for Sam, including superhero toys. They had a cake. Everyone seemed happy,” a source added. “They want to keep the family together.”

Jennifer and Ben share three kids: Violet, 11, and Seraphina, 8, and Sam, 5.

We’ve reached out to reps for comment.

    Well, sooner or later Affleck will likely “slow down.” He knows he has a good woman, and she must really, really love him and realize it’s really not her fault… he’d be that way with any woman, I believe. I knew she loved him by how she was building her family with him and how she allowed him to stay on the property after the divorce filing. She was in it for keeps. She just has to decide to be happy for her children and herself and not worry too much about him and what he may be doing.

    these two are ridiculous.

    Maybe if she “took care of him ,, , , ,” he would not have a wondering eye!

    way to blame women for men that cheat.

    Happy for them… That’s amazing 😍

  • Raquelle Worthington

    I hope they can work it out, I hate to see anyone with kids break up if there is any chance to keep the family together. Hopefully, since she has been so patient and mature, he will realize that there isn’t anybody better out there for him. Personally, I would not have been so good to him all things considered!

  • Guest

    What is wrong with this woman? What else do you need? Get ouuuuuuuuuuut.

  • Guest

    No, it’s not. He mistreats her.

  • Delores Pauldo

    Really people don’t believe everything you read. They should gotten divorce years ago. She can’t find another man to be with?

  • Delores Pauldo

    She didn’t give him a chance to find someone else. All publicity for her. When Ben get attention she still want to be around him. She can’t get no attention without him. Don’t believe what people magazine says.

  • Do Tell

    I don’t think it’s about attention. She loves him. Some people, they meet that one special person who does it for them… and they are done. They can’t imagine their lives without that person. It’s a great thing when it’s reciprocated. I believe he loves her too, but I think he’s had more “issues” in his life and I believe he struggles with being faithful to a woman. A lot of men are like that.

    You referenced the same with Eva Mendez and Ryan Gosling, you know, these women had careers prior to their relationships. You can’t really use that against them. It’s seems that both of these women care more about their personal life and children than their careers.

  • Gina

    What can I say, love is deaf, dumb and blind. He should be on his knees thanking God, that this woman puts up with him

  • Maria

    This comment is just…ugh. Seriously, stop. You´re either a dude or a woman that doesn´t love herself enough. #HappyInternationalWomensDay

  • Danae

    Poor children.

  • Delores Pauldo

    Jealous are ben being with another woman. Why couldn’t she find another man to be with? Break up and Broken engagement shouldge be that. What I look like still with my ex? Like Rachel Bilson can’t find another man to be with her so she get pregnant to keep a man. Jen keeping Ben for the kids. Ben should have got involved with someone else after the split. He didn’t have chance her following him around like that. Like Hayden christened should have the same thing. Instead get mixed up Rachel Bilson again. Ben should sriill date other people. Don’t care about the divorce on hold thing at. Jen don’t have nothing going for herself. Nothing but publicity thing for her. Ben don’t give into her again move on to someone else new. Like Hayden Christensen have done. Now he with child that he hardly be around. Jen too lazy to get out and find another man. Not surprise she still want to hang on to him

  • Ause Ekel

    He needs her to recover his image, she needs him to be noticed. It took them two years to realise that.

  • Mercyneal

    She’s an idiot. Low self worth. He’s a boozer and a wastrel and a philanderer

  • SaraJ

    Then why can’t she be a good wife NOW if she’s going to call it off? My God.
    “Divorce is off” – yet in the same report, “They are not back together”. How long is he going to be punished? She should let him go or treat him well.

  • Do Tell

    Do you really think she’s not good to him?

    Personally, I believe the problem lies more with him. JG loves this man. It’s as plain as anything.

    I believe they are both “torn.” He doesn’t want to break up his family. He has a good family and I have no doubt she’s a good wife too. He knows he has a devoted woman by his side. But he also must know how much he hurts her with his dallying, so he was probably going to agree to divorce her to stop tormenting her. I’m sure he hates hurting her, but he must lack self control.

    JG has not had “enough” yet… and maybe she never will. I think that if he can get over his urges to cheat, they can make it well.

    Cheating ruins so many marriages.

  • Do Tell

    Thanks. :-)

  • SaraJ

    Yeah, I do think she’s crap to him. She never puts an ounce of makeup on or any effort in her clothing – understandably it’s only worse at home. She doesn’t show affection by even holding his hand, but apparently wants to “work on” their relationship. What – as friends? So he has to be celibate and wait around for his wife?
    Personally I don’t think the problem is self control. Yes he has a gambling and possibly alcohol issue (which I think rears its head when he’s not working, probably from too much stress) BUT I think she pushed him to it by being this way for years. I also think it’s a problem that he’s heavily Catholic, so is his entire family and friend network from Boston, and she’s raising their kids Protestant. There is more than one issue here but the main one is Jenn is always the victim, tired mom.

    its not your call to make. get your own life fixed

    and you? are single?

    Wow, just wow. He had the opposite of JG, when he dated JLO and look where that got him. He is a broken man with no self control, the women in his life have all been more than lovable and nurturing, he’s the underlying problem and he needs to grow the hell up.

  • Do Tell

    I think Garner is not prissy because she’s the type of woman who puts everyone else first. I think she’s totally a giving person and unselfish. Many wives and mothers have very little extra time and they must purposely “make time” for themselves. I do hope JG learns to do that for herself.

    In my opinion, Affleck is somewhat “aloof.” I think he is the more self-centered person in this marriage. As for holding hands, HE can grab his wife’s hand, but perhaps after his shenanigans, she has pulled away somewhat. Since they were heading toward a divorce, I would expect them to be a bit distant anyhow.

    I don’t think their religion is a problem. Imo, neither ever seemed very religious. They got pregnant outside of marriage, and Affleck has been partying and sleeping with scandalous women for many years. He even cheated on JLo with strippers, etc. I think he is a “sex man” who also lacks self control in other areas of his life.

    However, many couples run to church and to God when they are in trouble & when they are searching for reasons NOT to divorce. I hope they will adopt many of the principles they are learning at their house of worship. I think those principles are not just for emergencies, but they really help marriages survive.

  • Do Tell

    I think Affleck’s situation with his father has caused a lot of dysfunction for him as an adult.
