Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner recently announced that they decided to split up. Many people were surprised, including us; however, on closer inspection, we realize that this was probably a long time coming. Rumors have been circulating for years that things between these two A-list stars were falling apart, but many of us shrugged them off, assuming that they would pull through yet again. Now that things are finally over, we’re taking a look at all of those signs that we conveniently overlooked over the past year or so. Here are 8 signs that Affleck and Garner were headed for splitsville long before they made their official announcement!
8. Ben Affleck’s Oscar Acceptance Speech
Back in 2013, when Ben Affleck accepted the Oscar for Best Motion Picture of the Year for his work in “Argo,” he seemed to acknowledge that he and Jennifer Garner were having problems. “I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It’s good. It is work but the best kind of work and there’s no one I’d rather work with,” he said. Calling his marriage “work” was definitely a sign that all was not well between Affleck and Garner.
