Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner may have scraped their 10-year marriage into the trash almost eight months ago, but they still haven’t dragged the bag to the curb yet. According to E!, no divorce documents have been filed in Los Angeles by Ben and Jen since they officially called it quits back in June. Not only are they in no rush to change their official marital status, they’re also in no rush to change their current living situation either. A source tells E! that Ben and Jen still live in the same house together with their three kids, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, and that they don’t have any plans to mess around with that arrangement.
“They are in a really good place right now. A lot of the dust has settled and they have become accustomed to their new life, which is separate but together in a lot of ways. They continue to make the family their first priority and they have always been on the same page about that.”
As for Jen’s recent interview with Vanity Fair, the source claims they’re both happy Jen spilled the shit about their split because it means they don’t have to talk about the death of their marriage anymore and can move forward. As for what moving forward entails, the source says: “They don’t know exactly what it’s going to look like, but for now what they are doing is working for the family.”
They do however know what their current situation is. Ben and Jen have been trading off parenting duties, as well as trying to do things together as a family whenever they can. That’s nice. Maybe one of the things they’ll do as a family is get together and hold an intervention for Daddy to make sure he doesn’t get any more stupid tattoos.
Here’s Ben Affleck’s wife at the premiere of her new movie Miracles from Heaven. And now I have DJ Sammy’s early-2000s club rat cover of “Heaven” stuck in my head. Thanks, Jennifer!
