Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner Reportedly Call Off Divorce

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - One of Hollywood's power couples may stay together after all.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are reportedly trying to work things out after separating in 2015.

"We have multiple sources telling us that the divorce is off for now, People Magazine Editor Janine Rubenstein told Louis Aguirre of "The Insider."

"All children deserve to be more or less allowed to, you know, hopefully grow up in a way that they have a decent chance to become normal people, and good people," Affleck himself has said.

Rubenstein said it was reportedly Garner's decision to reverse course.

"Ben and Jen went through a rough patch over the holidays, and they were on the brink of divorce," she said.

An "Insider" source close to Garner said there is no update or change in her relationship with Garner.

In an effort to preserve their family unit, Affleck remained in their Brentwood, Los Angeles compound in separate quarters.

"The day after the Oscars, Ben and Jen were the portrait of a happy family. They celebrated their son's birthday together with their two daughters, and sources tell us it was a very happy day, and it was kind of like it used to be for that family," Rubenstein said.

And while "People" said this may be a first step toward reconciliation, the pair is not back together just yet.

"We're hearing that Ben has been putting in a lot of work to better himself, and become the father and the husband that Jennifer wants him to be," Rubenstein said. "They are hopeful that they can reconcile."

The couple got married in 2005.
