Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's post-divorce living arrangement is anything but typical — and it's starting to take a toll on the mother of three.
Despite announcing their split in June 2015, Affleck and Garner, both 43, have decided to continue living together for the sake of their children. A new report from People magazine suggests that while the "Miracles From Heaven" star knows this arrangement will serve their three youngsters, it has been problematic for her. Sources tell the publication that she is ready to put their marriage behind her, and living with her ex has been difficult emotionally. Still, Garner reportedly couldn't live with the thought of her children wondering where their father is.
"She never wanted them to be disappointed that Ben wasn't there. But it was emotionally draining for her," the source said.
Regardless of Garner's alleged discomfort, the family of five continues to take vacations together. Most recently, they jetted off to Yellowstone National Park for a little family fun. According to Entertainment Tonight, the exes were seen boarding a private jet, with kids in tow, on Feb. 13. People magazine reported that the couple's oldest child, Violet, did not come along for the Valentine's weekend vacation. A source told the publication that Garner only agreed to go on the trip because it is important to her that her kids see them getting along.
This news comes amid rumors that Garner is hopeful the marriage can be saved. On Jan. 27, Radar Online reported that the "Batman" star was not interested in fixing his marriage, despite her best efforts. In fact, a source told the publication he wanted "nothing to do with getting back together."
