Jennifer Garner was spotted in Atlanta, Georgia, coming out of a store with a ton of "paw" balloons--with her wedding ring on. Dailymail makes some little aside about how she's on a "heartbreak diet" (I don't think she looks any different, except that her clothes are a lot lighter/summer-y), and notes that People has a source that said that Ben and Jennifer were keeping their rings on for their kids. I think that's a crock of bs to do that. Their kids aren't going to care if they're wearing their wedding rings or not (although they will notice--I notice every time my mom takes hers off). They care that they're not getting back together/aren't together. So it makes no difference to them. I don't get that reasoning/logic.
And note to Ben--if you're going to play "ring on, ring off"....just keep it on. All the time. We know who you are. We know you're separated/getting divorce. If the rumors are true, then your game won't be affected by whether or not your ring is on or off.
As for Jennifer--I'm interested in how she's going to play post divorce life. I see Jennifer as someone who is (maybe not quite the right word) obsessed with being the "Mrs.". Like I see her as someone who would say "Well, I'm Ben Affleck's only wife.". Or "I'm Ben Affleck's first wife.". I think that title is important to her--either way, she's won when it comes to future girlfriends/wives. Because you know Ben's next girlfriend is going to be 25, max. Jennifer's going to play up the "mom" role, definitely. You can see it with the movie she's working on now--Miracles From Heaven. That title screams family values and motherhood and all that is soft and squishy.
I don't mind Jennifer, nor do I love her. The last movie I saw her in was Elektra (which I really liked), but other than that--I think she spent too much time being Mrs. Ben Affleck. I hope she gets a hot boyfriend though (maybe even younger), because she is seriously gorgeous in a really understated way. I don't doubt that she doesn't have a plan. A plan that involves dimples and talking more and more about her family.
