Well, here’s one we didn’t see coming.
It’s been over two months since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their divorce, and despite occasional joint outings with their kids, it seemed from the start that both parties were more than happy to go their separate ways.
In fact, some outlets claimed that Affleck was already dating Christine Ouzounian, who had previously served as the couple’s nanny.
Now, however, it looks life Mr. and Mrs. Batfleck may be having second thoughts about their split.
According to People magazine, Ben and Jen have enrolled in a couple’s therapy program and have been spotted coming and going from a medical center in LA several times in the past two weeks.
Reps for the couple say the program is part of Ben and Jen’s effort to “go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting their children.”
Sounds plausible, but something tells us there’s more to the story.
Reports indicate that Affleck and Garner were separated for up to ten months before they filed for divorce.
Seems to us like they’ve already had plenty of time to work on the terms of their split and figure out how to keep things as amicable as possible.
Yeah, we’re thinking this might be an attempt at reconciliation.
Surprising, sure, but it kinda makes sense. After all, Ben’s been looking miserable lately.
We figured it was just because he had to spend his first birthday as a single dude at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, instead of making it rain at a strip club. But maybe he really just misses his family.
