Ben Affleck makes his split official… but Jennifer’s not quite there yet

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner managed to escape the press for almost a week by taking a joint holiday in the Bahamas as soon as their divorce announcement went public. Now though, they are back to reality, and the first post-split pictures have emerged.

After the long-planned trip, Ben returned briefly to Los Angeles at the weekend, while Jennifer flew onward to Atlanta with the former couple's three children, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3. Batman star Ben was pictured walking in his home neighbourhood of Brentwood on Saturday, and onlookers say there was no sign of a wedding ring.

The father of three yesterday flew out to Atlanta to take care of the kids while his estranged wife continued work on her upcoming movie Miracles From Heaven. He was again pictured with no ring on as he boarded a private jet to fly cross-country.

As for Jennifer, she did not seem quite as ready to let go of the past, as she was snapped on Monday with her silver wedding ring still on prominent display. The actress wore a short denim dress and sandals as walked on the set of her new film.

While the couple will have a lot to discuss as they work on splitting their assets and figuring out custody issues, so far they seem to be making a solid effort to remain amicable. Ben is even set to remain living on his and Jen's California property, albeit in a different area of the grounds to Jennifer and the kids.

We hope the pair continue to stay on such good terms in the coming months.
