The long-time Hollywood couple have endured a rocky road since confirming their split after 10 years of marriage, with rumors circulating that the “Argo” star’s alleged affair with former nanny Christine Ouzounian led to the breakup.
According to the New York Daily News, while neither were seen wearing wedding rings during their Thursday outing, Affleck and Garner’s sunny disposition also indicates that the pair want to maintain a united front for the sake of their three children: Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
The couple spent the summer in Atlanta, where Jennifer was filming Miracles from Heaven while Ben tended to their three children: Violet Affleck, 9, Seraphina Affleck, 6, and Samuel Affleck, 3. Since the family returned to L.A. in late August, Jennifer and the kids have been staying in the family home, which is undergoing renovations. Ben, meanwhile, is living in a rental down the street.
According to People, Garner and the kids are staying in the family’s home while Affleck is renting a house in the same neighborhood.
