Playing Are Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Headed for a Split?

Before Thursday's family outing Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner hadn't been spotted together for some time, fueling breakup rumors. Wonderwall's Jessica Wedemeyer told ET why the rumors could be a false alarm.

"It's not unusual for couples to be apart when one is on set, however Ben has been spotted in Santa Monica -- their home base -- several times in the last month by himself, so it's a little odd that they haven't been seen together when they're so close to home," Wedemeyer told ET.

After we spoke to Wedemeyer, the family was snapped out together getting ice cream in their neighborhood. Another point going against the rumors is that both Ben and Jennifer have been spotted recently with their wedding rings on.

Still, OK! claims that Ben would like to announce a split before their 10th anniversary on June 29.

"Ben and Jennifer reportedly spent her last birthday apart," Wedemeyer said. "He was actually photographed the day before her birthday without his wedding ring, however he was in Canada shooting a film, so it's not that unusual."

The couple have three children together: 9-year-old Violet, 6-year-old Seraphina Rose and 3-year-old Samuel.
