Apparently divorce is working out well for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

It's really no secret that we're rooting for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner to rekindle their romance, and while that may or may not happen, they continue to be the perfect example of how exes should treat each other.

Seriously, it takes a lot to be civil toward someone who hurt you, but these two seem to have nothing but respect for each other, and we love them so much for it, which is probably the reason (or at least one of them) we get so darned excited every time we spot them out together — which was most recently their family getaway on Aug. 15 for Affleck's 44th birthday.

The former couple, along with their three children, visited Montana's Yellowstone Club for Affleck's special day, and according to Us Weekly, a wonderful time was had by everyone (the destination is reportedly also one of their favorite places).

"There was a cake and they did the usual stuff: hiking and playing outside," a source close to Affleck told the publication. "They wanted to be together as a family."

But before you start getting your hopes up and thinking this family getaway could lead to the reunion we've all been waiting for, we're going to have to burst your bubble. According to the publication, the former couple got along well, however, "they didn't sleep in the same room. And they are not getting back together."

OK, so they may not be getting back together (for now anyway) but we really admire Affleck and Garner for the way that they've handled their relationship post split, and we hope to hear about a lot more of these family outings in the future.
