Jennifer Garner seems reluctant to take off her wedding ring, perhaps one of the last, most definite signs that a marriage is over.
Over the weekend, while Ben Affleck was at Comic-Con in San Diego, Jennifer Garner was photographed around Atlanta. She is there filming a new faith-based film, Miracles From Heaven.
In each photograph, Jennifer Garner is still sporting her wedding ring.
Ben Affleck was also sporting his ring on Thursday while spending the day with his kids in Atlanta. He wore it on Saturday, as well, during an appearance at Comic-Con to promote Batman Vs. Superman.
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck announced their split on June 30th, just one day after their 10th wedding anniversary.
A statement from the couple read, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. 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 continued, “This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
While that was to be Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s only statement on the matter, speculation has run rampant as to what caused them to split up.
Some say Jennifer Garner couldn’t take anymore of his drinking and gambling issues. There have also been several rumors of infidelity on the part of Ben Affleck.
Either way, it tends to point blame on his side.
A friend of Jennifer Garner said, “She loved Ben, but there comes a time when you have to say enough is enough and take care of yourself.”
What do you think about Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck continuing to wear their rings? Is it a sign of hope for their marriage?
