Sources told Us that Garner, 44, is preparing to file for divorce from Affleck, 44, nearly two years after their separation. “No matter what happens, Ben and Jen are committed to raising their family as one unit and will continue to do so as it has worked for them,” a source said. “They are both committed to their family. Another source added that Affleck has moved out of their home in Brentwood.
However, conflicting sources from E! News say that Affleck and Garner have been trying to rebuild their relationship and work on their communication by taking trips together. And Affleck is still living in their home in Brentwood. "Their relationship is very fluid and nothing has really changed," a source said. "They have been working at their relationship for the past few years."
Now the question is: How will Garner and Affleck divide their assets and custody of kids Violet, Seraphina and Samuel? Affleck has arguably had a more successful career. He has an estimated $105 million net worth thanks to his work as an actor, writer, producer and director.
But Garner’s not without her success. She’s made millions thanks to her acting roles in Alias, 13 Going on 30, Elektra and more. She has an estimated $60 million net worth.
Luckily Garner and Affleck have kept things very amicable since the breakup. They announced the split in June 2015, but Affleck continued to live in their home. They would often go out as a family and even went on vacations. And they’d travel together so the kids would still be with both parents if one of them filmed on location.
Following the breakup, Affleck was accused of cheating on Garner with the family nanny, Christine Ouzounian. But despite the drama, the exes still had nothing but nice things to say about each other. Garner previously told Vanity Fair that Affleck was the “most brilliant person in any room” and “the love of [her] life.”
“I didn’t marry the big fat movie star; I married him,” she previously said. “And I would go back and remake that decision. I ran down the beach to him, and I would again.” She did admit that Affleck was a “complicated guy” though.
