Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were one of Hollywood’s favorite couples for several years. When the couple divorced, people all over the world were heartbroken.
But one thing we must appreciate is how adult they were about their separation…
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner met one another in the late nineties when they were working on the set of Pearl Harbor together. However, they only began dating after 2003 when they met again while co-starring in the Daredevil movie together.
In 2005, the couple was married much to the adulation of their fans and the general public! Their eldest child is daughter Violet who was born in 2005, next is Seraphina who was born in 2009 and then little Samuel who was born in 2012.
The couple decided to part ways in 2018 and divorced. They share three children together and are committed, co-parents. But Affleck does have some regrets.
Affleck landed himself in hot water due to some comments he made on Howard Stern’s podcast. But the actor went on Jimmy Kimmel’s show and cleared the air saying his comments were taken out of context and he never felt “trapped” in his marriage or blamed Garner for his problem with alcohol. He said, “I would never want my kids to think that I would ever say a bad word about their mom. It hurts my feelings, man.”

“The biggest regret of my life is this divorce,” Affleck said. “Shame is really toxic. There is no positive byproduct of shame. It’s just stewing in a toxic, hideous feeling of low self-worth and self-loathing.”
“I have certainly done things that I regret,” he added. “But you’ve got to pick yourself up, learn from it, learn some more, try to move forward.”
Since their divorce, Ben Affleck has dated several high-profile women. However, what made waves around the world and caused a media frenzy was his marriage to ex-fianceé Jennifer Lopez! The couple wed in a secret ceremony in July 2022.
While Ben Affleck’s new relationship and marriage make headlines all across the globe, Jennifer Garner keeps things incredibly private. However, she has also been dating.
Garner or Miller have never publicly acknowledged their relationship but have been seen around town together. The first time the couple was seen together in public was when they attended the musical “Dear Evan Hansen” in Los Angeles.
Their relationship is incredibly private and their second outing was months later in a restaurant in Santa Monica in February 2019. After this period, they reportedly broke up for a while. However, it was reported that in May 2021, the couple rekindled their relationship after they were spotted together in New York City in August of the same year.
Miller has previously been married before to violinist Caroline Campbell. He married the musician in 2005 and the pair split in 2014, and officially divorced in 2018, right around the time Miller started dating Garner. They have two children together.
Both Affleck and Garner are now in other fulfilling relationships and seem to have a great balance with one another.
Earlier this week, Garner and Miller were spotted parking their car outside of Garner’s home. Miller walked over to greet Affleck who had been standing at the side of the road. The two men shook hands, and exchanged comments and big smiles before Garner walked over and joined the two of them.
All four of them seem to be getting on quite well because just a few weeks ago it was reported that Jennifer Lopez joined Garner and Affleck at their daughter Seraphina’s musical performance in Los Angeles.
Late last year, Lopez famously appreciated Garner in an interview. She said,
Garner was an “amazing co-parent” to Vogue. Adding that the former couple “work really well together” when it comes to the needs of their children.
She further added that blended families need “to be handled with so much care.”
“They have so many feelings. They’re teens,” she said of her own teenage children with ex Marc Anthony and Affleck’s kids. “But it’s going really well so far. What I hope to cultivate with our family is that his kids have a new ally in me and my kids have a new ally in him, someone who really loves and cares about them but can have a different perspective and help me see things that I can’t see with my kids because I’m so emotionally tied up.”
Honestly, it warms my heart to see everyone getting on so well. I am so happy for all of them for being content with where they are in life!
