Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are not heading for a split, according to sources - despite reports suggesting otherwise.

The pair, who have been married for 10 years on June 29, have been at the centre of rumours surrounding the state of their relationship for the past few weeks.

However, despite allegations the parents of three are heading for a split, sources close to the pair have insisted their romance is stronger than ever.

Entertainment Tonight quotes sources as saying Ben and Jennifer “are fine” and are looking forward to spending the summer together as a family.

The state of the pair’s marriage was called into question by Us Weekly, who alleged in a recent issue that Ben’s “workaholic nature” was causing issues between the couple.

“They are trying to work it out for the kids' sake, but things are not all peaches and cream with them,” an insider told the publication.

According to the outlet, Jennifer and Ben have been having regular sessions with a counsellor – as individuals and as a couple.

“When things are rough, they go more often,” the source added.

Last month, Jennifer opened up about her marriage in an interview with Yahoo! Parenting.

And the actress admitted that having their children, nine-year-old Violet, six-year-old Seraphina and three-year-old Samuel, definitely changed her relationship with Ben.

“You just go on a ride together because you don’t know who you’re going to be when you first have a baby and you don’t know who [your partner] is going to be,” she said.

“You have to just hang in there while you figure it out — and have a lot of patience for each other.”
