(Newser) – Less than a month after reports that Jennifer Garner was finally filing to divorce Ben Affleck—two years after they split up—sources are now saying the couple has decided to give marriage another go. "They love each other. They also really, really love their kids, and those kids love their parents," one source tells People, adding that the decision was mutual. Another source says it was Garner, specifically, who "called off the divorce" and decided to try to "work things out."

People's sources do acknowledge that things were recently so bad that an "exhausted" Garner did plan to file for divorce. But they're still living together most of the time, taking vacations together, and celebrating holidays together; the magazine says they recently threw a small party at their LA home for their son's birthday, and "everyone seemed happy."
