Ben Affleck and wife Jennifer Garner haven't been seen in public together for more than a month, which wouldn't be that big of a deal for two working actors, except their last co-appearance came just after Affleck was spotted sans wedding ring — on Garner's birthday. Which is not a good look for a husband. Naturally, Radar Online smells blood in the water and is reporting that the two are "leading separate lives." Cue the dramatic music.

"Ben is in the grips of a midlife crisis," a source told the National Enquirer earlier this month. "The bottom line is that Jen can't trust Ben. It's a vicious cycle. He'll screw up then he'll get it together, but then it's only a matter of time before he's back to bad behavior." Personally, I blame the ridiculously long "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" production schedule.
