EXCLUSIVE! An insider tells HollyBaby that Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck’s marriage is in trouble. “They seem more like friends and not lovers,” says our source.
Rocky romance rumors have been swirling around Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck for a while now. Sadly, HollyBaby.com has learned that their five-year marriage is indeed in serious trouble. “They are doing things separately now and that’s not a good sign,” an insider tells us. “Recently, when Ben returned home from Oklahoma where his new movie is being filmed, they seemed more like friends and not lovers. It’s not like them to do that.”
Both Ben and Jen are trying hard to put on a happy face and hide their marital problems from their daughters, Violet, 4, and Seraphina, 22 months. “Jennifer took Seraphina out and Ben took Violet. They met up later at the house, but Ben soon left for a business meeting,” reveals the insider. We first told you all about that separate outing on November 8!
Jennifer, 38, was alone with the kids on Halloween but she’s hoping Ben, 38, will come home for Thanksgiving next week. Although from what we’re hearing, Ben’s way more focused on his career than on saving his marriage. “He’s so into his work right now,” says the source. “His career is at a high point. It’s something he’s struggled with since the success of Good Will Hunting, 13 years ago. He’s not going to slow down.”
While her husband has become a workaholic, Jen refuses to let him walk out on the family they’ve created together. “Jennifer will never give up on her marriage. It’s too important to her,” the source tells HollyBaby.com.
Can you blame her, HollyMoms? Don’t you agree that Jen should keep fighting to save her marriage? We just hope Ben wakes up and realizes just how much he’s messing up his family right now, before it’s too late.
