Jennifer Garner Apparently Doesn’t Mind Ben Affleck Gambling Because It Keeps Him From Cheating

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck getting Seraphina ready for school December 2013In case you were wondering how Jennifer Garner feels about Ben Affleck getting a reputation as the kind of gambler who gets kicked out of casinos, apparently she’s fine with it, because it keeps him distracted enough that she doesn’t have to worry about him cheating. Guhhhhhh.

As you may recall, Ben was kicked out of the Hard Rock Casino in Vegas a couple months ago after getting caught counting cards, and it apparently happened again a few days ago at Caesars Windsor Hotel and Casino in Ontario. It’s not technically illegal, but casinos usually kick people out if they discover them doing it, because it makes it decreases the odds of the house winning. So while Ben wasn’t breaking any laws, I imagined Jenn would be at least a little bit embarrassed about getting asked to leave, and the fact that people are speculating about whether Ben has a gambling problem and whether they’re heading for divorce.

But apparently that’s not the case, at least according to Radar Online, who has a source claiming that Jennifer doesn’t mind the gambling, because it keeps Ben from cheating. Facepalm.

“Jen is happy with Ben gambling because she feels like it keeps him focused.”

She’s allegedly told friends that it ‘helps with’ their relationship for Ben to have an outlet outside of work.

“The alternatives are working, gambling, and spending time with family or out on the town partying. Gambling replaces that last option … he’s either working or gambling.”

So spending time with family is definitely out? We’re for sure taking that off the table? That’s a pretty low bar to set for Jennifer Garner, who presumably thought she’d signed up for a husband and not a fourth child. Woof.

      I think his gambling is going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Poor Jennifer :(

        So scary.

      • mimismowball

        You are the one who is scary. I just read through one after another after another “Ben and Jen and their troubles” garbage you spew, almost daily. You are one obsessed weirdo crank who needs to seriously GET A LIFE! I agree with Isabelle you are just creating drama and trouble for your own nasty agenda.

      • NYCNanny

        She’s insane. All her posts are ridiculous.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Thanks for commenting on so many of them!

      I can only say that if my husband had overcome alcohol addiction I’m not sure how enthused I’d be with him gambling……of course I’m not in their marriage but I just would be worried he’d get addicted to that too.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Absolutely! It’s all the same thing really.

      • NYCNanny

        It’s actually really not, and you seem to know nothing about addiction.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Transferring your energies from one addiction to another isn’t healthy, and it doesn’t address the base problem. That’s what I mean about it all being the same thing.

      • NYCNanny

        Nowhere does it say he’s addicted to gambling. With your logic, someone with a last addiction will never be able to enjoy anything in a healthy way, ever again….????

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        In this particular conversation, we’re discussing capoupascap’s husband. But thank you for inserting yourself.

      • NYCNanny

        Key phrase : you’re not in their relationship. You have no clue.

    • Isabelle

      So there can never be a healthy relationship between two actors? I don’t know if it’s just this site or others but it seems like some people want to create trouble and exaggerate drama to try to “out” a secretly bad relationship. It’s kinda sad because I’m sure inflammatory articles help cause a riff between relationships that are otherwise healthy.

    • Mierzwiak

      Dear Alexis, what’s your problem with them? Is it obsession? Are you jealous or what?

      Also “according to Radar Online, who has a source claiming”… are you kidding me?

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        What’s your issue with that particular sentence?

    • NYCNanny

      Ok ok ok. You’re obviously not in a healthy adult relationship because if you were, you’d understand that most people need some personal time outside of their relationship. For Ben, this is gambling with his friends. Not a big deal. I think it’s great that this couple is mature and realistic about relationships and marriage and family. They admit that marriage is occasionally hard and you need to work on it.
      And what are you talking about, spending time with the family is off the table? In fact, that’s the posited of the quote. Where did you go to school??? Reading comprehension 101.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        “In fact, that’s the posited of the quote.”

        Definitely do need that Reading Comprehension 101 class again, because I have no idea what you’re trying to say here.

        And as it happens, I don’t mind you speculating about my relationship, because just like I don’t know Jen and Ben, you don’t know me! You’re entitled to say whatever you like in a similar circumstance, as am I.

      • NYCNanny

        Sorry. Typo! “That’s the OPPOSITE of the posted quote.”
