Even though Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner seemed like the perfect couple, their close friends are not the least bit surprised to hear that the two were unable to surpass their problems. In fact, those close to the former duo say that their obstacles were insurmountable and that it was only a matter of time when Jennifer would give up on their marriage.
Garner’s friends say that she really tried to fix her marriage and that she was always open for compromise, but all her efforts turned out to be futile. Apart from being frequently absent from home, Affleck’s drinking and gambling seriously jeopardized their relationship and eventually proved to be too much for Garner.
On the other hand, other well-informed sources claim that their split was mutual and that Ben ‘couldn’t deal with Jennifer’s expectations.’ Here’s what they told People magazine:
Saying he’s a bad father and a husband is an easy story, and everyone has wanted to clock him as a womanizer and gambler. When you’re told you’re not good enough, you start to believe it.
We do, however, wonder whether that justifies Affleck’s destructive behavior.
