Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, dubbed Bennifer, are not together, but they are not separated, either. The couple wants to give their love another chance; they have a strong connection, deep feelings, and warm hearts, so why would they throw their potential away? Take a trip down memory lane, and you'll uncover the answer.
After they celebrate their 10th anniversary, they announce their split the next day. Behind Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's (or Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's) divorce, Bennifer's public separation is the most shocking Hollywood split.
Rumors of Ben cheating with his nanny swirl around California, but Jennifer disavows the hearsay. "We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce," the actress discloses.
Whether or not Ben and the nanny are involved in an extramarital affair is irrelevant. Jennifer feels little intimacy from her estranged husband, and his "complicated" persona is too much for her to handle.
"He's just a complicated guy. I always say, when his sun shines on you, you feel it. But when the sun is shining elsewhere, it's cold. He can cast quite a shadow," Jennifer relays.
The pair have their issues, but their struggles infiltrate into their triad of children. Violet, Seraphina, and Sam love their parents very much, so when they witness their mother and father's tension, they feel the tension, too.
However, there's still hope for Bennifer.https://youtu.be/0J81GvxUN08&h=450
Revert to the present day.
Rumors are swirling yet again, but not about scandals galore. Apparently, Ben and Jennifer are rekindling their relationship.
"Jen has called off the divorce. She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try. They love each other, and they also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents. They want to keep the family together," an unnamed source asserts.
Bennifer makes for a sexy, sedulous, and smart couple. However, they should only stay together, if their relationship's healthy.
Will the sun shine, or will rain fall?
Bennifer can't control the weather, but they can control how they'll fare.
