Yes, after all the messy break-uppage Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck seem to remain on I guess okay terms.
At one point, the Benster was living in a guest house on the property and then I guess renting Brooke Shields’ mansion down the street and now, back, punctuated by a couple familial jaunts to the family place in Montana. Well there was a subtle shift in this narrative recently: Ben is now staying the room next door to Jen. Now there’s yet another “how they’re doing” story in E! and it’s reinforcing that everything’s okay, breathe, they’re living together, and I guess it works. Yes, breathe again:
“They will continue to live in the house together and have no plans to change that arrangement,” a source told E! News exclusively.
“They are in a really good place right now,” the source said. “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.”
A month after Affleck and Garner’s breakup announcement, the actor was linked to his children’s 28-year-old nanny. He has denied anything romantic went on between them. She no longer works for the family. Garner recently broke her silence on the split and the nanny in a bombshell interview with Vanity Fair.
“We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny,” the actress said. “She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce.”
“Now that the Vanity Fair article is out, neither of them feel the need to talk about the past or the divorce,” the source told E! News. “They feel like everything has been answered and they just want to move forward. There is a lot of love between them. They don’t know exactly what it’s going to look like, but for now what they are doing is working for the family.”
Sure, they’re “trading off with the kids,” but I wonder if this divorce is going to go through ASAP or if they’ll live in a state of limbo and then…who knows. All this non-divorce divorce has a sister (me) CONFUSED.
Do you think they’ll reconcile?
