If Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner don’t get to steppin’, they’re going to end up being married for another few years past their expiration date as a couple. A judge already told them that if they can’t settle up PDQ, the court may call off their divorce and they will have to refile. Leading up to today, Jen’s been dragging her heels and taking her sweet time, while Ben has been tapping his toes in anticipation. And, according to US Weekly, Ben’s sobriety (or lack thereof) is the reason Jen won’t pull the trigger. Thanks to her, we may have to keep hearing about this infernal divorce for years to come.
Us Weekly Reports:
“Jen just isn’t willing to settle the custody issues until she’s 100 percent certain that he’s clean.”
Now, it’s up to him to rise to the challenge. Says the insider, “She’ll wait for him to prove he is taking it very seriously.”
Apparently, Jen just wants him “to be the best father he can be”.
Sources claim that Ben is ready, and has been ready for some time, to wrap things up with Jen and that he’s been doing the work to stay sober. He was spotted at an AA meeting (or in Ben’s case, just an A meeting) as part of “his practice and how he maintains his personal health”. He’s also been attending meditation and yoga classes. And just yesterday, he celebrated his 46th birthday and did NOT get a new tattoo (that we know of), so he’s making strides, folks.

If being the a separated father of 3 kids hasn’t been keeping Ben sober, I don’t see how being the divorced father of 3 kids is going to somehow be more of a challenge. Jen’s turn as Captain Save-A-Ho was about as impressive as Ben’s Batman. Maybe it’s time to let go and let a ho save himself.
