Ben Affleck has decided to end his short-lived marriage to Jennifer Lopez, even though he still loves and cares for her, a source close to the actor has revealed. Multiple sources report that JLo is desperate to make their marriage work, which is why the couple has not officially filed for divorce despite dealing with marital troubles. Although Affleck was not on board with Lopez’s decision initially, he tried to make their relationship work. However, it seems like it is no longer viable.

“This seems to be the standard practice in Hollywood these days so that there’s no messy court battle,” the source explained. The Gone Girl star is “not backing down” and is “100 percent committed” to going through with the divorce,” a source told In Touch Weekly. “It’s just a question of timing.”

“The last thing Ben wants to do is hurt Jen,” they added. “He still loves and respects her and, of course, the family situation comes into this heavily, which is why he’s agreed to do this in a civilized and loving way, just like he did with Jennifer Garner.” The insider went on to note that before Affleck and Lopez take the final step to call it quits, “they’re going to get all their ducks in a row.”

Providing more updates, they shared that Ben Affleck “is far from comfortable right now” as he has to deal with Lopez’s mood swings along with his work commitments. “Besides being busy with a lot of his own work, he’s got J. Lo’s mood swings to cope with, phones ringing off the hook, and the press hounding him 24/7. Plus, a lot of people in J. Lo’s world and the public are treating him like the bad guy.”

Despite the challenges, Affleck’s decision to end the marriage highlights the complexities and pressures faced by high-profile couples in Hollywood. The ongoing scrutiny and public interest in their relationship continue to add to the strain, making it difficult for them to navigate their personal lives privately.
