Jen seemed content, she didn't look upset and didn't say anything."

Regardless of whether Affleck and Garner's outing was romantic — their date could have just been a meeting to discuss their parenting strategies or some other child-related topic — they have proven time and time again that exes can actually be amicable. And they've handled their relationship post-split exceptionally well, proving they have nothing but respect for each other.

But could they be thinking twice about their divorce? Maybe.
