Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s love story may have come to an end after ten years of marriage, but the couple has a decade of sweet and loving moments to look back on, from athletic outings to loved-up red carpet appearances and everyday family strolls.
The actors first met on the set of Daredevil in 2002but romance didn’t bloom until the summer of 2004, after Jennifer parted ways with boyfriend and Alias co-star Michael Vartan. Within a year, Ben and Jen tied the knot during a private ceremony in Turks and Caicos and became parents to their first child, Violet. "We were able to have a beautiful, private wedding, and I couldn't be happier," the actress told People magazine shortly after saying ‘I Do.”
Despite their ability to turn up the glamour on red carpets, Ben and Jennifer had long remained one of Tinseltown’s most normal couples, maintaining a private life away from the spotlight full of happy family adventures with their adorable children – Violet, now nine, six-year old Seraphina and little Samuel, 3. Both Ben and Jen have pledged to put their children first, even sheltering them from news surrounding their split by whisking them away to the Bahamas for a family vacation.
Professionally, the A-listers supported each other’s careers by taking turns working on films and always being on hand to help promote their partner's projects. Most famously, Jennifer was right by Ben’s side when his film, Argo, captured the Best Motion Picture trophy at the 2013 Oscars. On stage, the director thanked his wife for her dedication to their marriage, saying, "It is work but it's the best kind of work and there is nobody else I would rather do that kind of work with.''
From their early days as friendly co-stars to becoming parents and a Hollywood power couple, we look back at Ben and Jen’s most tender moments through the years.
