Surprise, surprise: Jennifer Garner has decided to hold off on divorce proceedings from her estranged husband, Ben Affleck. I guess she didn’t hear about the return of the original Bennifer and their lukewarm, I mean, explosive chemistry!
According to People, the actors, both 44, aren’t exactly back together, but they’ve decided to keep working on their marriage in a perpetual state of limbo. How modern!
A source tells the magazine that Jen called off the divorce because she just really wants things to work out with her very sad baby daddy. “There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents.”
If you need more proof of how badly these two kind of want to be together, please consider this very telling anecdote from their son’s 5th birthday: “They had a cake. Everyone seemed happy.” Um, duh. Cake makes everybody happy. But cake can’t help a doomed marriage, so. Good luck or whatever.
