Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are allegedly just as happy to do things with their kids separately as together.

The A-list couple announced their separation in June, which coincided with their tenth wedding anniversary.

The couple share children Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and three-year-old Samuel, and are reportedly putting on a united front for the little ones. Both continue to wear their wedding rings, and the family recently enjoyed some bonding time in Atlanta, where Jennifer is filming new movie Miracles from Heaven.

"Ben and Jen are acting in the same way in Atlanta as they do in LA. They do activities separately with the kids and also together," a source told People, adding that they are in no rush to get divorced.

"[They're] concentrating on being a family right now."

People also report that Ben, 42, and 43-year-old Jennifer are set to divide their assets via mediation, and will continue to live together for the time being.

The family are currently residing at a home owned by Brooke Shields while their house is having work done.

Both actors are said to be coping well in the wake of the split.

"He's happy to be with the family. Jennifer is doing great. She's focusing on her family and her work," the source noted.

Last week it was claimed that Ben's good friend Matt Damon has been there for him during this tough time. Agent Patrick Whitesell has also been on hand.

“They have formed a tight circle of protection around Ben and are determined to keep him from a full-on breakdown,” an insider told RadarOnline, adding they want him to stay focused on upcoming work.
