Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner: Divorce Called Off ... Probably!

by at .

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's divorce has been called off - or at least put on indefinite hold - more than a year after their public split.

The couple broke up last summer, but in recent months, any talk of getting divorced has ceased altogether, sources reveal to Us Weekly. 

All despite an ugly breakup and rumors that Ben was drinking, gambling, away for long periods of time and/or banging Christine Ouzounian,

In fact, neither party has filed divorce paperwork. Ever.

“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 actor, 43, and actress, 44, are cohabiting with their kids in their $17.5 million mansion, albeit in separate bedrooms at the moment.

Garner "seems to still be in love with Ben but doesn’t allow her mind to go there,” says a friend close to the mother of three.

“She just focuses on the kids.”

As for the dude down the hall?

“If it was up to Ben,” adds a second insider close to the situation, “they would be together. He feels like he can’t live without Jen.”

Another Affleck source insists that the breakup is still happening, but lawyers are hammering out the details of their divorce privately.

“They were never in a rush to file," the insider says of the parents of Violet, 10, Seraphina, 7, and Samuel, 4, regardless of their issues. 

"This was always the plan.”

“They want their kids’ lives to go on as uninterrupted as possible,” says the friend, reiterating that this is their priority and there is no rush.

So ... will they or won't they?

Right now, the jury is still out.

For every report like this, or Jen taking back her divorce decision, which signals hope for the pair, there are others suggesting it's over.

Just recently, reports had Garner dating an accountant, or being tricked by Ben into staying with him ... so clearly there's a lot we don't know.
