Ben Affleck luckily married to the 'most patient wife ever'
Remember when Ben Affleck was encouraged to leave a Las Vegas casino last month, ostensibly because he was just too darn good at blackjack? The incident prompted rumblings that his gambling could be impacting his 9-year marriage to Jennifer Garner. But People is here to assure everyone that all is well, and the "relationship is solid."
"She never understood his gambling obsession, and she doesn't want him to be in the news [for it]," says an insider. "[But] she's the most patient wife ever and is still very much in love with Ben. … She thinks he's amazing dad."
Affleck, who's been checking out the casino action in Detroit while filming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," burnished that Father of the Year image with a recent stop at Barneys in Beverly Hills with 5-year-old daughter Seraphina.
"Seraphina announced to a saleslady she was looking for a special gift for her mom," relays a spy. "Ben let her take her time. She wanted her mom to have diamonds. They ended up buying a gift and had it wrapped at the store."
