After all the headlines, emotional morning-show interviews, hounding by the paparazzi, could Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner just give up on their divorce filing and stay married?!

That's what could happen if they don't seal the deal soon, according to an LA judge in charge of the matter. After ten years of marriage, the couple filed for divorce last year, but neither has shown up in court to handle the proceedings since then.

Garner received a third notice for case review Friday which says the divorce won't be final until a judgement is filed and entered -- that means Garner has to send a declaration of disclosure to Affleck and file that service with the court. If these things aren't done, the divorce is off! The court didn't give a deadline for this to happen, however, but the general rule is that if a divorce proceeding isn't diligently pursued within two years of filing, it's OFF!

Some speculate that Jen's taking it slow to piss of Ben because he's ready to tie the knot with his possibly-pregnant girlfriend Lindsay Shookus. That said, Lindsay's still gotta divorce her hubby Kevin Miller. Jeez! It's all so messy!
