jennifer garner ben affleckI’m sure the Affleck-Garner family has their strife just like everyone else. Heck, even when Jennifer Garner was wholesomely pregnant with baby Samuel, she expressed regret at marrying young (the first time around). But according to a “source” close to the couple, what makes this nuclear family so sparkly and and Wonder Bread-worthy is that the pair have a Mad Men-style arrangement happening. And apparently it’s working for them.

People magazine reports that both Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are comfortable in their ”quite traditional roles” given that Jennifer has scaled back her career to take the brood to ballet, karate, etc. A reported “Affleck pal” maintains that the old-fashioned husband and wife make it work by employing a Don and Betty Draper way of assigning out duties:

 ”Have you ever seen Mad Men? That’s how he approaches

[marriage and kids]

– providing for your family is your priority, and raising the kids day-to-day is the wife’s priority…”His wife and family are the best things that ever happened to him,” says an Affleck pal. “They have always come first and always will.”

In my mind, this also includes Jennifer Garner hosting tupperware parties and twirling about her fainting couch in dresses much like this:

Who are we kidding. Jennifer Garner would never smoke!
