It's definitely going to be an adjustment for everybody.
Ben Affleck is getting through tough marital times thanks to his momma, who he's spending time with after the announcement last week that he and wife Jennifer Garner were divorcing after ten years of marriage.

A source reports Ben's mom, Christine, has been steady for him through tough times in the past, and is continuing that support now that he and Garner have split:
"While Jen is turning to her family and friends, the person in Ben's life is his mother. She is a constant rock for him. She had remained close to the family as well. She's been there for him through this extremely difficult time."
That's important for Ben, of course, but also the couple's children — nine-year-old Violet, six-year-old Seraphina, and three-year-old Samuel — who have been spending time with Christine in El Lay recently.
The source continued:
"He is really leaning on his mother for support. Ben and his mom have always been very close."
Divorces are tough, no matter who you are — and especially tough on the kids. Here's to Ben, Jen, and the kids all getting the emotional support they need during this tough time!
