Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced their divorce over a year now but, seemingly odd though, the couple is still living in the same house.

It seems as though there is one person getting in the way of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's divorce, and that person is no other than Ben's mother, Christine Boldt.

According to celebrity gossip, Christine is begging Jennifer not to pull the plug on their marriage because of her son's tendency to relapse or worse, create mistakes that might damage his career as well as his reputation.

It has been known that Jennifer and Ben have been separated for a year now, but neither Ben nor Jennifer had filed divorce papers yet. Actually, it's one of the strangest divorce situations in Hollywood. No one would ever think that after the announcement of divorce, the couple is still living in the same house and co-parenting their children together even if the romance is not there already.

According to a reliable source, Ben's mother asked Jen to stop the divorce proceedings because this might really bring damage to Ben's career and reputation. The couple's future though, is another mystery not only to their fans but to their family and friends also.

It really makes sense that Christine would definitely want to see his son, Ben with Jen still together. She knows for so long how her son really needs stability that comes from having a family and children to attend to.

Moreover, Christine fears that if Jen would push thru with the divorce, her son Ben Affleck would go back to his old ways of drinking and smoking which could really harm his health, an worse his future as well.

Definitely, Christine doesn't like how Jennifer Garner has been handling the divorce and parading her grandchildren in front of the paparazzi, but she has no other choice.

Once Jennifer Garner already files for the divorce, it's a guarantee that Ben Affleck will not be forgiven by the public especially if he moves on with another lover and Jen manipulates the media by playing the single mother victim.
