Ben Affleck announced that he wanted to “ostensibly” be a “good husband.”

Ben Affleck hasn’t been really expressive about his rekindled romance with starlet Jennifer Lopez, although he has been spotted quite a lot of time in public with his new lady love.

The 49-year-old actor recently opened up about his career choices, future ambitions, and the kind of balance he wants between his work and personal life.

Affleck told a magazine that he has worked “incessantly” over the past years but that sensation started to fade as he found a new meaningful role in life and that is – being a father.

He has 3 children with his ex-wife Jennifer Garner. Violet is 16, Seraphina 12, and a son Samuel who just turned 9.

“Being a good father is the most essential thing. Being a good man is the second most essential thing. Also, he’s a kind guy. And, you know, apparently, a good spouse. Hopefully, this will happen, said Affleck.

Ben Affleck also stated that he has no intentions of sharing his future plans regarding Jennifer Lopez in public. He stated that he has learned the hard way that “not everything should be shared with the world.”

“There are some things that are private and intimate, and they have importance in terms of intimacy because they aren’t shared with the rest of the world,” he explained.

The two-time Academy Award winner stated he “considers himself very fortunate to have received second chances in both his professional and personal lives.”

“Life is challenging, and we are constantly failing and, hopefully, learning from our mistakes,” he explained.

“The second chance is the one thing you really need to take advantage of the opportunities that come with that growth. I’ve made every effort to take advantage of it. I haven’t always been successful, but when I have, it has turned out to be one of the most important things of my life.” Affleck spoke about his future goals.
