Nearly two years after their separation, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are reportedly making a big step toward reconciliation.
A source told People magazine, "Jen has called off the divorce. She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try.”
It was reportedly a mutual decision. An insider said, "There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents.”
“Ben is making a big effort to take care of himself. They are not back together, but there seems to be hope,” the pal close to Garner added. "Jen is hoping they can stay married. Ben doesn’t want a divorce either.”
Jennifer reportedly had a change of heart in the marriage since the time when she “was telling friends that she plans on filing for divorce.” The source went on to say, "She just wanted to move on and focus on the happy things in her life. She was exhausted from all the ups and downs.”
Back in October, Ben gushed over Jennifer, telling “Extra’s” Charissa Thompson, “I’m so impressed by it — her and everything she does. She's a great mom and that's how it is.” Watch!
