The news of divorce was not really any big news after the split of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner… Ben was still mr. party dude and Jennifer was stay at home mom with the 3 kids, and of course all the rumors of cheating were running rampant.
Jennifer had claimed that Ben’s drinking was getting in the way of being a good father and she was not willing to have the kids around Ben alone in fear that his drinking would get in the way of parenting.
TMZ reporters have been told the physical custody agreement is very vague, it doesn’t outline any specific division of time with the kids. But, at least in the beginning, Jen will get the lion’s share of custodial time, and when Ben has the kids he will have a monitor to ensure he’s sober and the kids are safe.
Having someone watch Ben during his time with the kids was the only way that Jennifer would agree to the joint custody.
