Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are just weeks away from their 10th wedding anniversary, but they may not be in much of a mood to celebrate. After nearly a decade as husband and wife, the parents of three are well past the honeymoon period. In fact, they're smack in the middle of a marriage crisis, insiders reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.
Rumors of a split have dogged the couple off and on for years, but this time, sources say, there may be something to them. "Where there's smoke, there's fire," one insider shares in the new issue. "The marriage is in trouble."
It has been for some time, too. According to a second source, the Gone Girl star, 42, and the Dallas Buyers Club actress, 43, "have had problems from the very beginning." Among their biggest issues? Affleck's "workaholic" nature and "many vices."
Insiders say their kids — Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3 — are the glue that's just barely holding them together. But as one source says, "things are not all peaches and cream with them."
(A rep for the Batman v Superman star declined to comment on Us Weekly's cover story; Garner's rep could not be reached.)
