Are things really over? Ben and Jen are back in marriage counselling

Our emotions just cannot take any more of this!

Jennifer Garner and soon-to-be (possibly, maybe not?) ex-husband Ben Affleck are apparently seeing a marriage counsellor.

According to People magazine, the pair who have been spotted out and about together recently, are working on figuring out the next step in their relationship.

The Hollywood A-List duo announced their split in June. Just recently however they have been spotted leaving a family counselling centre in Los Angeles.

People reports that before their separation they were attending weekly counselling sessions but stopped going completely in the months leading to the announcement of their break up.

This week, the pair were seen leaving the centre all smiles, although neither were wearing their wedding rings.

The “amicable exes” said in a statement to media outlet at the time that they were planning to “go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children."

The pair spent the summer in Atlanta, where Jennifer was filming her latest film Miracles from Heaven.

The family have since returned to L.A with Jen taking residence in the family home with children Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.
