Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have reportedly called off their divorce. The two want to give another chance to their relationship.

The two have remained close, though they announced their divorce in a joint statement on 30 June 2015 — a day after their tenth wedding anniversary. A source told People: "Jen has called off the divorce. She really wants to work things out with Ben. They are giving things another try."

The insider added: "There is always a chance of reconciliation. They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents."

"Jen was telling friends that she plans on filing for divorce. She just wanted to move on and focus on the happy things in her life. She was exhausted from all the ups and downs. They want to keep the family together," the source continued. "Ben is making a big effort to take care of himself. They are not back together, but there seems to be hope. Jen is hoping they can stay married. Ben doesn't want a divorce either."

Previously, Affleck had talked about his successful co-parenting with Garner. He told E! Online: "I was doing math homework last night. When I'm there, you're stuck with your parents helping you with your homework. Jen [Garner]'s very good at math [too]. So far, my eldest kid is in fifth grade and they haven't passed me yet. But I feel like in seventh or eighth grade I'm going to start worrying that they're going to lose me."

Affleck continued: "It's important to be involved with your kids' schoolwork so you know what's going on and what they're doing and what you're supposed to be supporting and going to school nights."
