An insider told the magazine that, “They were in couples therapy for years. They were going to divorce when Sam was born but you know how it is — baby comes and solves the issues for a bit but it’s just a Band-Aid. It hasn’t been working for ages.”

“Ben truly wanted his idea of family life and the idea of family he had growing up in Boston so he stayed in it longer than he wanted to because of the kids and the idea of family,” the source continued. “But he couldn’t save it.”

While it is likely reports about the issues the couple had will continue to surface, they made it clear yesterday that they will not be commenting past their initial statement.

Our thoughts are with Affleck, Garner, and their families during this understandable difficult time.
