So, Ben Affleck gave a very moving Oscar speech when Argo won the Best Picture Academy Award. During that speech he cried, and also maybe implied that his marriage was breaking up? People are having all kinds of feelings about it! I think maybe part of those feelings are due to the fact that people really want Ben Affleck to be single.
In any event, after a very moving introduction, in which he thanked the country of Canada, Ben Affleck said that:
I want to thank my wife who I don’t usually associate with Iran. I want to thank you for working on our marriage for 10 Christmases. It’s good. It is work but it’s the best kind of work and there’s no one I’d rather work.
Look, honestly, whenever I hear people bitterly moan about how marriage is work, I think “maybe your marriage is just not a particularly happy marriage. Maybe this is a problem specific to you, and your marriage. Also, those people who tell me that “marriage is work” often to seem to get divorced, perhaps because they already have jobs, and having two seems taxing.
But! Ben Affleck also seemed very nervous, and trying to get through his speech very quickly, and Jennifer Garner was smiling. Perhaps this is all just making a mountain out of a mole hill.
