Is this divorce happening, or WHAT?
More than a year after Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their split, neither have filed divorce paperwork. In fact, some sources say talk of divorce has ceased altogether, which is…hard to process considering all the commotion with gambling, drinking, the nanny and a revealing Vanity Fair article. But, hey, love is complicated, isn’t it?
“Jen mentioned that the divorce was going through very soon, and then a few weeks ago, things changed,” says a source close to Garner. “It does not seem to be moving in that direction.”
The Justice League actor, 43, and actress, 44, are cohabiting in their $17.5 million, five-bedroom mansion, albeit in separate bedrooms. Garner revealed in the March issue of Vanity Fair that she sleeps with their oldest daughter, Violet; Affleck bunks in the guest room, according to a close source.
“Jen seems to still be in love with Ben but doesn’t allow her mind to go there,” says the Garner pal. “She just focuses on the kids.”
The man down the hall is also having trouble letting go. “If it was up to Ben,” adds a second insider, “they would be together. He feels like he can’t live without Jen.”
Still, an Affleck source insists lawyers are hammering out the details of their divorce privately. “They were never in a rush to file. This was always the plan.”

After Affleck’s affair with nanny Christine Ouzounian last summer, the couple have been in total parent mode to kids Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4. I don’t think we’ll get full closure on this until they actually sign papers and move out…if they even do move out.
