“They smiled and chatted during the morning run,” says a source. “There was no obvious tension between them.” They were also seen last September 3 going a to a two-hour family therapy session together. But the therapy was not for their reconciliation, it was for establishing ground rules for Garner and Affleck’s kids.

A source told People, “There is no reconciliation. They are working with a professional because there are emotions involved and they want to make this transition as easy as possible for their family.”
Garner and Affleck are working hard for their children’s adjustment to their upcoming divorce by co-parenting.
“There is no chance Jen and Ben will get back together and she finally feels that she deserves to be happy without him, ” another source also said.
Jennifer Garner is more focused on herself now and reportedly told friends, “Not having to be Ben’s mother has been a huge relief,” the source claimed.
Jennifer was also seen enjoying her time with her kids last Tuesday when she took the siblings for ice cream after school. She was also reportedly back in her usual L.A. routine.
But her noticeably new glow isn’t because of a new love life. According to the source Garner is not ready to date yet but she is committed to co-parenting with Affleck.
Meanwhile, another source told Radar that even if Garner and Affleck are co-parenting, “Jen doesn’t care who Ben dates or hooks up with. She just doesn’t want the kids to be asking any questions about it.”
