Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck attended what is being called a "marathon" counseling session recently, but despite their efforts there is no chance of a reconciliation in the cards. The session wasn't to resolve their marital issues anyway, but was instead a meeting during which the two discussed some ground rules for raising their three children together from this point forward.

The couple initially planned to live on the same property for a while until the children grew accustomed to the idea of a split. It's a bit unclear if that plan is still under consideration in light of a few things Jennifer Garner has since learned.

InTouch Weekly reports that Ben Affleck recently admitted to having an inappropriate relationship with nanny Christine Ouzounian. Since then, Jennifer Garner has been ready to get the divorce over with.

It was back in June that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced that they were calling it quits after nearly 10 years of marriage. They are parents to daughters Violet and Seraphina and son Samuel.

It took a while for both Ben and Jen to take off their wedding rings, and even though she has seemingly done so for good, he is--at times--still spotted wearing his.

Might Ben Affleck have realized he has given up a good thing--if in fact he did lose Jennifer Garner over an affair with Christine Ouzounian?

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been spotted running errands together recently. They seem to be trying to present a united front for their kids.

This has been the summer of celebrity splits. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert got divorced and Jon Hamm and his girlfriend of 18 years--Jennifer Westfeldt--just announced they were calling it quits, too.

Do you expect Christine Ouzounian might be the reason behind Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's split or was she merely the icing on the cake?
