Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are back from the brink of divorce.
Though the actors, both 44 who announced their separation back in June 2015 aren’t back together, they have decided to keep working on their marriage after going through a recent rough patch that nearly led to a permanent split.
Jen has called off the divorce,” a source close to Garner tells PEOPLE in the latest issue. “She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try.”
But a source close to the couple says it was a decision they both made:
“There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents.”
Though Affleck and Garner announced their separation nearly two years ago, they have remained close, living together much of the time and co-parenting their kids. They’ve even taken family vacations together and recently celebrated the holidays together in Montana.
