News of "Batman V Superman" actor Ben Affleck attending a two-hour marriage counselling session recently gave fans hope that the couple was moving towards reconciliation.

However, a source close to the couple revealed to Radar Online that the couple has no plans to get back together, and the marriage counseling was just to sort out the issues before they got divorced.

"Jennifer knew there were issues on the table that needed to be discussed with their marriage counselor," the insider revealed. "Ben had no problem with going. He knew it was important after all of the issues that came up while they were in Atlanta."

After weeks of denying any sort of an inappropriate relationship with Christine Ouzounian, Affleck is said to have admitted to the affair with his kids' nanny. This affair is believed to have prompted Garner to seek divorce from her husband of 10 years.

"Ben had admitted to an inappropriate relationship with the kids nanny, Christine Ouzounian, before they had left for Atlanta," the source revealed. "He was definitely in the dog house, but it was Jen's idea for Ben to pay for Christine to stay at the Hotel Bel Air until the press feeding frenzy died down."

At this point, Garner doesn't care if Affleck starts dating the nanny, the source said, adding that all the actress wants is an opportunity to move on in life and be happy with their three children -- Violet (7), Seraphina (4) and Samuel (20 months).

Affleck is believed to have broken off his relationship with Ouzounian soon after their alleged affair became public.

An eyewitness reportedly overheard the former nanny dishing out details about her relationship with Affleck near the Bel Air Hotel pool, and based on the witness account, Affleck is said to have professed his love before breaking up with her.

Ouzounian told her friend during a phone call that "he broke up with me … He told me he loved me, but he can't be with me under these circumstances," reported Radar Online. "At one point while she was talking to her friend on the phone, without mentioning Ben by name, Christine said, 'I didn't want to go to the Bahamas, but he really wanted me to.'"

The former nanny seems to be referring to the vacation she took with the "Batman V Superman" actor and his children before Affleck and Garner announced their split.
