On June 30, a day after their 10 wedding anniversary, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck officially announced they were getting a divorce and breaking up, and the rumors swirling about their crumbling marriage had been true all along. It’s no secret that Ben Affleck isn’t exactly the model husband, he has had a reported drinking problem and a gambling addiction for many years, not to mention all of the alleged cheating scandals. But, Jennifer Garner has put up with her husband’s behavior for a decade – what inspired her sudden change of heart and made her decide that “enough was enough.”
According to the July 20 edition of Life & Style Magazine, the final straw for Jennifer Garner was when she left the kids in Ben’s care, and he showed up to pick them up from school drunk! An insider dished to Life & Style Magazine, “When Jennifer had to film the movie “Nine Lives” in Montreal, she expected Ben to pick up the slack. Jen got a call that Ben was forty minutes late to pick up the children from school. And, when he did arrive, she heard that he smelled of booze and cigarettes.”
Your husband showing up to your three kids’ school reeking of booze is enough to put any mother over the edge, and considering all of the scandals Jennifer Garner has endured over the years – no one is really blaming her for deciding that enough was enough and she wanted a divorce. But, that doesn’t mean that leaving her husband of ten years is any easier for the actress. While Ben seems perfectly okay with getting to be a free agent again, and able to do what he pleases, Jennifer Garner is having a tough time with the divorce. Life & Style Magazine’s inside source added, “It is devastating for Jen. But, she is thinking about her kids and what is best for them.”
