Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their plans to divorce back in June 2015, but it’s almost as if they haven’t really broken up at all. Yes, the couple did say that they would be keeping a united front for the sake of their three kids, and they have been spotted on numerous outings with them – but they’ve also been photographed spending time together without their little ones, including dinner dates and office visits; last year, they met up at Vanity Fair’s annual post-Oscars bash and spent the holidays together, though sources close to the couple have said that they “find it annoying” to deal with each other so closely.
More details about the couple’s estrangement came from Jennifer herself, in a soul-baring profile for Vanity Fair’s March 2016 issue. The actress opened up about all those rumors of infidelity and shut down that unfortunate nanny scandal by saying that she “had nothing to do” with their split. Despite the obvious hardships and challenges, it seems as though Ben and Jen are truly working hard to keep their relationship amicable for the sake of Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. We’ve rounded up all the times they’ve been seen out together since announcing their divorce (which is still on, by the way).
