"Jennifer adores John and still sees a long-term future with him," a source spilled to a news outlet after the low-key couple was first linked in 2018. And while, "There’s no desire on her part to slow things down, spend less time together or anything like that," the 13 Going on 30 actress "decided after a lot of thought that she’s just not in a hurry to rush down the aisle just yet."
The source emphasized, "She feels perfectly happy cherishing and enjoying what they have — for now — without a formal label."
If Garner and Miller were to go ahead with a wedding, this would be her third time walking down the aisle following her previous union with ex-husband Ben Affleck and Scott Foley — whom she was married to from 2000 to 2004. Affleck and Garner, who wed in 2005, share children Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 10.
Miller was also previously married to Caroline Campbell, with whom he shares two kids.
When news of their romance first broke —Garner and Miller had already been seeing each other for six months at the time — an insider gushed: "Jen brings out the best in John, and he is the happiest he has probably ever been. It’s a loving, healthy relationship."
And while the public rarely sees the two out together, their blended brood has apparently started to see more and more of each other.
