The embattled couple recently reunited for the first time in seven weeks after seemingly raising eyebrows with their persistent separate outings.

Affleck and Lopez had not been pictured together since they grabbed lunch at Cecconi restaurant in New York on Easter Sunday. However, on Thursday, the pair reunited in public when the "Let's Get Loud" singer joined her husband for his child, Fin's school production.

Lopez donned a beige button-down top tucked into light-wash flared jeans and stilettos for the outing, while Affleck wore a dark blue flannel, a grey graphic T-shirt, jeans, and Nike sneakers.

Things still don't look convincing between them, as an eyewitness told the news outlet that Affleck "did not look happy to see JLo as she arrived at a show for one of his kids."

"When he saw her get out of her car, they did not hug or kiss," the insider noted.

According to Perez Hilton, a source said the couple is prioritizing their children over their marriage troubles.

The insider noted that "nothing would have stopped them coming together for the kids" and that "the marriage drama comes second."

"They are putting on a united front. Jen showed up with Emme to support Fin. Emme's super attached to Fin, so it's only natural that Jen, no matter what she's going through with Ben, was there," the source noted.

"Jen looked super thin and was dressed casual-chic," the source shared. "She didn't glam up like the last time she came to a school function. She seemed more subdued than usual when she greeted Ben as he pulled the car up. Emme was super excited, though, jumping for joy over Fin's performance."

Anything," she wrote in a caption to one post. "You are brilliant and beautiful and worthy of love and all the beautiful things in life. If you ever learn one thing from me, let it be that."
