While they are currently living in separate houses amid their marital issues, the 'Shotgun Wedding' actress and the 'Air' actor still wear their wedding rings.

AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are not ready to pull the plug on their marriage just yet. Amid rumors of their marital breakdown, sources have dished on the current status of the powerhouse couple's relationship.

A so-called insider confirmed to Us Weekly on Thursday, May 16 that Jen and Ben are indeed "having issues in their marriage." The informant added, "They started having issues a few months ago as Jen had started ramping up work commitments and prepping for her tour."

As to why the pair grew apart lately, the source claimed, "Jen is very focused on work," adding that "they are on two completely different pages most of the time." While J.Lo has been spotted house hunting without Ben in Los Angeles, it is intended as an investment property, according to the source.

A second source confirmed that Ben has been staying at a place in L.A. that is separate from the couple's usual home. Although they are living separately, the second insider insisted that the two stars are not currently planning to separate.

A third source additionally noted that the duo are working on their relationship.

Showing that their commitments to each other remain intact, Jen and Ben are also still wearing their wedding rings. The singer and the filmmaker rocked their wedding bands during their separate outings on Thursday.

The "Hustlers" star sported her ring as she arrived in an L. A. dance studio. As for the "Air" director, his ring was clearly visible during his solo morning drive as he had his left hand hanging out of the window.

In Touch previously reported that Jen and Ben are headed for a split after less than two years of marriage. "They just couldn't make it work," a source told the magazine. "The writing is on the wall - it's over," the insider shared in an interview published on Wednesday. "They're headed for a divorce - and for once, [Ben's] not to blame!"

"He's focusing on his work and his kids now," the so-called insider claimed. "Ben already moved out and they'll likely have to sell the dream house they spent two years searching for. They'll never stop loving each other, but she can't control him, and he can't change her. There's no way it could have lasted."

Adding fuel to the speculation, the pair were last photographed in public outing together seven weeks ago, when they grabbed lunch in New York City. On Thursday morning, the "Justice League" actor was seen leaving a house in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles where he currently stays while living apart from Jen.
