One year on: So, are Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner REALLY over?

It has been exactly a year since our favourite celebrity couple announced their intention to go their separate ways, and the world stopped believing in true love for a second. 

On June 30th of last year, Ben Affleck, and Jennifer Garner announced that they would be splitting up after 10 years of, what seemed like, marital bliss.

The couple, who have three kids together, made a statement to E! News where they said "We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time."

It's safe to say that this has been one of the most amicable celebrity splits of all time, leaving us all wondering WHAT is going on? 

A number of months after their announcement, rumours of an affair started to spread. Nicknamed 'nannygate' by the American press, it was revealed that Ben was seeing his children's nanny, which is a real no-no in anyone' s language.

Jennifer, 44, rose above the allegations, and continued to be friendly and civil to her babydaddy.

The question, however, remains: Where do the pair stand today?

Well, according to PEOPLE, there is yet to be any signs of a divorce. A friend of Jennifer's told PEOPLE that "Ben still doesn't want the divorce."

Despite this, it would seem that the separation is still on, with the source going on to say that Jennifer "doesn't seem to mind at all that the divorce is not finalised, but she seems adamant about going through with it." 

However, when Ben, 43, appeared as a guest on the HBO TV show Any Given Wednesday last week, and was asked about his career, he said 'My wife was really instrumental and helpful in me doing a lot of that work.'

Yes, that's right – WIFE.

So no matter what the outcome of this drama, it is clear that Bennifer will always have a lotta love in their hearts for each other.
