Why are Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck getting divorced? HollywoodLife.com has the exclusive reason on why Ben just had to call it quits, after ten years of marriage and three kids.
Millions of hearts broke on June 30 when Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner confirmed rumors that they would be ending their marriage, after 10 years and the births of their three children. Now, while everyone is still processing what exactly went wrong with the once golden couple, HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that it was Ben who had pushed for the divorce, and why he just couldn’t stay married to Jen any longer. We’ve got the shocking– and heart wrenching– deets.
So, what went wrong with the formerly perfect couple? Apparently, quite a bit. “Ben missed being social Ben,” a source close to the couple revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY. “He always had to get rid of friends for Jen, he always had to give up being him for Jen. He loved her, he loves her and he will always be grateful for the children they have together, but she ended up being more of a mom than a wife and Ben didn’t want to live that life anymore.”
So sad. Of course, we have to wonder, after all this time together, why the couple decided to pull the trigger on divorce now. “It’s been years and it got to a boiling point of no return during Gone Girl,” the source added. “That’s when they knew that counseling and all othet routes to save their marriage were not working.”
And sadly, it doesn’t seem that the couple will reconcile any time soon. “Not a chance,” our source revealed as to whether they could get back together in the future. “It’s over,” they added.
