According to the National Enquirer, Affleck needs to stay away from the blackjack and poker tables if their renewed relationship has any chance of succeeding.

“Ben’s gambling habit was probably Jen’s biggest complaint aside from the womanizing,” said a source who knows Affleck. “This was a huge issue for them, but at least Ben is towing the line.”

Affleck is taking his wife’s new rule very seriously, avoiding casinos and spending his time at church with Garner and their three children. But he’ll be on thin ice for a while until he proves that he can stay away from blackjack and poker.

“She’s told Ben the moment he sets foot in a casino again he can kiss their relationship goodbye for good,” the Enquirer source explained. “It triggers so much other bad behavior — like boozing and all-nighters!”

We previously covered Affleck’s love of blackjack, which was exposed when the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino asked him to stop playing because he “was too good” as a card counter. Affleck confirmed that the card counting story happened, and he was later kicked out of Caesars Casino Windsor in Canada. Based on their knowledge of Affleck’s play at the Hard Rock, security took just 20 minutes to ask him to leave.

Rejected at the blackjack tables, Affleck was also dealing with pressure at home since Garner wasn’t happy about his extensive gambling. The couple decided to split last year, with Affleck moving out of their Hollywood mansion. But it looks like the couple will give it another shot, as long as Affleck isn’t caught anywhere near a blackjack or poker table.
