Jennifer Garner is reportedly sick and tired of practically being a single parent to daughters Violet and Seraphina while husband Ben Affleck is always busy working.

Oh no! It looks like Jennifer Garner‘s five-year marriage to Ben Affleck has hit another rough patch. “Jen is ready to give Ben a shape-up or ship-out ultimatum,” a source close to the couple tells the National Enquirer. What could possibly be tearing them apart? They have always seemed like such a great couple. According to the tabloid, the situation is “tragic” because Jen’s fed up with Ben, 38, who seems to care more about work than their daughters, Violet, 4, and Seraphina, 21 months. “Jen appears to have become the loneliest soccer mom in Hollywood,” says the source. What is wrong with Ben? He should consider himself lucky to have such wonderful women in his life!

“They’re barely together these days. She wants Ben to make her and the kids his main priority. She wants him to start by letting her and the girls join him when he travels,” says the source, adding that Jen believes that spending more time together is the key to saving their marriage. We are totally on Team Jen on this one! She’s such an awesome mom, don’t you think HollyMoms? She’s always looks so happy to be taking her daughters out shopping and to soccer practice and ballet classes.

But at the moment, the 38-year-old’s isn’t sure that they’ll make it to their next anniversary. “Things are not looking good between them right now. They used to be so happy, but unless something changes drastically, it seems inevitable that the couple will split,” says the insider. Ben better get home to his family before it’s too late! We hate the thought of Jen being miserable and alone. She deserves so much better than that!
