In the end, they both found their happiness!
Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck first met each other on set of the film “Daredevil” in 2003. At that period of time, Affleck was still dating Jennifer Lopez. That is why his relationship with Garner started in 2004. They both quickly fell in love with each other and already in 2005 they were thinking about marriage.
On Garner’s 33th birthday, Ben proposed to her. Two months later, in 2005, the couple married. The wedding ceremony took place on Turks and Caicos Islands, and only 4 people were present. Victor Garber, who is a close friend to Jennifer Garner, was their wedding officiant.
At that time, Garner was already pregnant. On December 1, 2005, their first daughter Violet was born. Later the spouses had two more children – Seraphina and Samuel.
The spouses broke up one day after their 10th wedding anniversary. They used to be one of the most famous and beloved Hollywood spouses. During their public divorce, Ben Affleck made several statements on their marriage. These statements caused a great stir on the Internet.
Howard Stern’s podcast with Ben Affleck went viral. The actor admitted that he suffered from alcoholism which was the result of his marriage. According to him, he would have kept drinking, if he didn’t divorce Garner.
Affleck wanted to speak up about his family problems, but many of their fans thought that he was just blaming Garner for his alcoholism. Garner, in her turn, is a strong woman and managed to always be a good mother for her children.
In her interview to Vanity Fair, Jennifer Garner expressed her disappointment, that she couldn’t dance with her husband on their daughter’s wedding.
