Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner know how to play bold. In fact, they play so bold, they’ve changed the game! After 10 years of marriage, the hot Hollywood couple announced their split last year. But, instead of going at each other all guns blazing in a bitter divorce row, Ben and Jen have created what friends are calling “a new normal.”
First they surprised us by taking a vacay together this year (hauling their three tots off to a ski resort in Montana over Valentine’s Day weekend) and now they’ve taken ‘being amicable for the sake of the kids’ to an all new level. We hear Ben and Jen will live together in the UK with their three children later this year, while Ben films ‘Justice League: Part One’ at Leavesden Studios. An insider suggests, “Ben wants his family close when he’s working, and staying together in a new country will be a great experience; despite himself and Jennifer being no longer a couple.”
While this new-age ‘uncoupling’ continues to amaze us, we will say Ben’s vocal and public praise of Jennifer must make the situation a lot easier to bear. The ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ star recently explained: “Life doesn’t always turn out exactly the way you want… we don’t know what the future’s going to hold. Each step that we take is one where we prioritise our children and everything else comes second. Jennifer is just so good at doing that and sets such a good example. And that’s a lead that I follow.”
If you can’t sustain a marriage, this is — without a doubt — the best way to call it quits.
