Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are keeping up the appearance of an amicable relationship for their kids’ sakes, even spending the holidays together, but insiders say the two aren’t all that happy with their post-split living situation.
Ben is currently living in a guest house on their 3 acre Brentwood property, but it isn’t easy for the exes to be living together.
It’s obvious many times that they both find it annoying to deal with each other. Understandably so. It’s a strange situation to live together and yet be separated.”
Yeah, I can see that! It’s what makes divorce with kids so tough: the best way to get over a relationship is to stay away from the ex, but when you have kids, that’s not feasible. Living together has to be even more difficult!
A source said:
They are almost never together alone without the kids. They don’t hang out. It’s a cordial relationship.”
Well, that’s good to hear.
Sources say they are continuing with the current living arrangements for their kids’ sakes (Violet, Seraphina, and Sam). One source said:
They both seem to find the situation frustrating, but for now at least, they also seem to think it’s best.”
Another source explained:
They are doing what is working for the kids.”
An insider said:
The kids are happiest that way, so Ben and Jen are going to continue on this path for now.”
An added benefit for Jen is that she no longer worries about what Ben is up to.
Jen just shrugs her shoulders and says, ‘He can do whatever he wants!’ She feels relieved that she no longer has to worry about what he is doing. All she asks is that he is a good father.”
That sounds like the best approach for her to take!
