Ben Affleck and Jenner Garner Giving it ONE MORE CHANCE, Divorce Off!
Call me crazy, but I KNEW it was almost "too cordial" between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Gardner when they broke up. I'm all for "conscious uncoupling," but come on- they continued to gush about one another in the press, they still lived together, went on vacations together, and after over a year the divorce hadn't happened? I smelled a reconciliation from miles away. And it seems I'm right! People Magazine reports that, although they aren't officially back together, Jen has called off the divorce, and the couple is going to work on their marriage. A source close to Jen reveals to the magazine, "She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try. “There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents." OMG, so there's a chance Bennifer will exist once again?! It's almost like that near-divorce has now become just a "rough patch." The source explains,"Jen was telling friends that she plans on filing for divorce. She just wanted to move on and focus on the happy things in her life. She was exhausted from all the ups and downs." Now, from what I've heard in the tabloids, Ben does have a history of gambling, excessive partying, and the whole Nanny-gate scandal when he was reported to have had an affair with he and Jen's nanny. I'm wondering if these are some of the "ups and downs" the source is referring to. It sounds like Jen's decision to call-off the divorce came fairly recently. The source reveals that after Matt Damon and Ben Affleck were reunited at the Oscars, just a few weeks ago, Jen and Ben hosted a party at their home in LA the day after. Bennifer seemed like their old selves again, playing with their kids, eating cake- everyone seemed happy. So I guess I leave it up to you guys then. Can this power couple make a comeback after throwing in the towel? Or will we be left with another Khloe Kardashian Lamar Odem scenario, where a reconciliation always seems right around the corder, but never quite makes it around the bend. Let me know in those comments.
