It has been exactly one year since the news broke that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s marriage was as dead as the nerves in his present-day face. And in the past 12 months, it didn’t really look like Ben and Jen were in much of a rush to officially call it quits. They were going to marriage counseling. They were still living together in the same house. There were rumors that Ben was trying to win Jen back and that she was actually considering it. Well, a source recently filled Entertainment Tonight in on the latest details, and it sounds like Ben and Jen’s divorce papers might be destined to keep gathering dust in a closet at their lawyer’s office.
According to the source, Ben and Jen still haven’t officially filed divorce papers, and they “don’t know if that will ever happen.” The source adds that they’re “making it work“, which could explain why Ben said the words “my wife” (and not in a Borat way) during his interview with Bill Simmons last week.
So, bad news, aspiring “mystery blondes” who were hoping to be the next lucky lady to get iced out in an Uber by a grumpy Ben Affleck. It sounds like he might be sticking with his wife after all. Or at least until another nanny gives him a boner by slipping into his favorite sexy ensemble (aka Tom Brady’s collection of Super Bowl rings).
I don’t have good feelings about this, but it’s not really up to me, is it? Jennifer Garner is a big girl. She can make her own decisions. Obviously the best decision would be to file those damn divorce papers, but who am I to judge? Maybe Ben’s unfrozen caveman smug grunts make her feel like a natural woman. But if I was Victor Garber, I’d probably keep an intervention guide in my back pocket for the first time my girl says that Ben has gone to Vegas last-minute “for a thing.”
Here are some pictures of still-technically-married Jen sans wedding ring at the airport yesterday.
