Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck in Trouble, in Marriage CounselingMara Siegler
Jennifer Garner is constantly photographed out with her kids looking like the perfect parent. The shots are always ultra-sweet but there is always one thing that strikes me: Where the heck is Ben Affleck?
And he’s not just missing in paparrazzi pics. The pair are also never photographed on the red carpet together despite the fact that they have been married for five years. Seems odd.
Now come reports that the couple’s relationship is in trouble. They are working on it though!
The couple has been in marriage counseling since last year to work on their issues, reports In Touch. “Ben was never the marrying type,” says a friend. “He is still a playboy at heart, and now that he’s getting closer to 40, he seems to be going through a midlife crisis. Ben battles demons, but does his best to keep the marriage going. He loves Jen and adores his daughters, so he’s making it work.”
Hopefully, with therapy these two can patch things up. Jen is certainly trying. She recently flew from New York, where she is filming her upcoming movie Arthur, back home to LA to see Ben. The pair were spotted out (and photographed together!) on a romantic date at Nobu.
