A source said to the outlet, "Jennifer hates smoking. You do not look like Jennifer Lopez if you don’t look after your body. She doesn’t drink, she doesn’t eat bad food and she certainly doesn’t smoke." However, Affleck's smoking isn't the only thing the couple is at loggerheads about. According to a friend of Affleck, the actor "didn't realize what he was getting into," with the insider claiming that the couple has been fighting nonstop since saying "I do" in July and August this year.

It’s his one guilty pleasure and something Jennifer might have to learn to live with.”
