By now we’ve all seen the pictures of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner leaving a marital counseling session. They weren’t meeting to discuss a possible reconciliation: instead, they had a two-hour session to deal with how to move forward and co-parent positively as well as deal with all the issues that Ben’s alleged affair with nanny Christine Ouzounian raised.
An insider explained:
Jennifer knew there were issues on the table that needed to be discussed with their marriage counselor. Ben had no problem with going. He knew it was important after all of the issues that came up while they were in Atlanta.”
I can imagine they had quite a bit to discuss!
The source said:
Ben had admitted to an inappropriate relationship with the kids nanny, Christine Ouzounian, before they had left for Atlanta. He was definitely in the dog house, but it was Jen’s idea for Ben to pay for Christine to stay at the Hotel Bel Air until the press feeding frenzy died down.
“Jen doesn’t care who Ben dates or hooks up with. She just doesn’t want the kids to be asking any questions about it. There is no chance Jen and Ben will get back together and she finally feels that she deserves to be happy without him.”
It sounds like Jennifer has “turned a corner,” to so speak. Good for her! She’s said to be doing well now that they’ve decided to divorce.
[N]ot having to be Ben’s mother has been a huge relief for [Jennifer], and she is finally able to focus on her life. She isn’t even ready to date, that isn’t even being discussed. Ben has been told by Jen to not hit on any of the moms at their kids private school.”
It’s ridiculous that Jennifer would have to “lay down the law” like that, but after the nanny fiasco, I wouldn’t blame her for it IF this story is true. Ben clearly needs to learn that, single or not, there are some women who need to be off-limits. Do you believe this story? I wouldn’t be shocked if it were true; I’m going to call “Fact” for this one. How about you?
