Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck appear to be a united front as questions about their marriage continue to rise.

The couple were all smiles while driving together in Brentwood, California, on Sunday, May 19. Affleck, 51, was driving his car while Lopez, 54, sat in the passenger seat. The actor appeared to keep a casual look with a T-shirt while Lopez had on a turtleneck and her signature hoop earrings.

“They started having issues a few months ago as Jen had started ramping up work commitments and prepping for her tour,” the insider shared. “Jen is very focused on work. They are on two completely different pages most of the time.
