They’re putting on a united front for their kids.
Just three days after officially filing for divorce, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner attended Easter Sunday church services together as a family.
The estranged couple smiled and seemed happy as they left a Los Angeles church on Sunday, April 16 with their three children — 11-year-old Violet, eight-year-old Seraphina, and five-year-old Samuel.
Since announcing their split nearly two years ago, Jen and Ben have been committed to keeping their family close — so close that the 44-year-old has been living in a guest house on the couple’s property in Pacific Palisades, California. But now that they’re going through with the divorce, that arrangement will change soon.
“Ben will move out and is looking for a property close by so they can continue to co-parent as they have been,” a source revealed to Us Weekly. “He will move out when he finds the right place.”
Jen, 44, was the one who decided to move forward with their divorce. It seemed like the couple was trying to make it work amid their issues — many of them stemming from Ben’s history with substance abuse. The Argo star even admitted himself into a rehab facility to undergo treatment and he thanked his estranged wife for supporting him after he completed the program last month.
But it seems like rehab couldn’t help fix their problems — and even though they’ve decided to part ways, Jen had nothing but nice words to say about her husband of 10 years.
“He’s the most brilliant person in any room, the most charismatic, the most generous. He’s just a complicated guy,” she told Vanity Fair last February. “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.”
