Ben Affleck ‘Admitted’ to Cheating on Jennifer Garner; ‘Gone Girl’ Actor Asked for Forgiveness
Jennifer Garner has reportedly admitted to friends that her husband Ben Affleck confessed to cheating during their 10-year-marriage.

We have a feeling that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have been over for quite some time now before they announced their split because of Ben’s revelation on why their marriage of 10 years broke apart. Read below for the full details:

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been putting a united front amidst their split but the truth is, things have been falling apart between them for quite some time now when Garner found out that Affleck has been cheating on her. What is unknown to many, though, that back then, the 42-year-old actor asked for forgiveness, which urged her to give him a second chance.

In fact, the 43-year-old actress has been very open to her friends about the “affair” her husband had, telling friends that he “admitted to cheating” and she even kicked him out of their house, NY Daily News cited.

However, there are some sources that are saying that the “Gone Girl” actor did not cheat but it seems like there was a lot more going on between the couple within those 10 years together.

“Jen always fought against the urge to throw her hands up in the air and walk away. They’ve been on the brink of splitting up many times before, but it’s Jennifer’s worst nightmare for their children. Her biggest desire has always been to keep the family together,” a source close to Garner said, according to

Regardless of the rumours and the split, Affleck is working hard to keep his family together even if he and Garner have broken up. He’s trying to make things easier by being a more devoted father to their children and it looks like he and Garner have somehow formed a bond or rather, a partnership towards an amicable co-parenting relationship for the sake of their children.

In fact, following the divorce announcement, Affleck and Garner were spotted with their kids in the Bahamas. It looks like they will remain united as parents to their children, and that’s good enough!
