When Hollywood’s favourite couple announced their decision to divorce this summer, a lot was written about them and it’s still continuing. From topics like “What went wrong?”, “Ben cheated on Jen”, “Ben banged his children’s nanny”, “Jen was fed up with Ben’s alcoholic and gambling habits” – seriously a lot has been written about the pair.
Because they were together since 2004 which is like an eternity in Hollywood. The former couple began dating in 2004 and married in 2005 when Jen was four months pregnant with their first child, daughter Violet. The couple are now parents to two other kids, six-year-old Seraphina and three-year-old Samuel.
In their decade long marital life Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have remained or appeared extremely solid and happy in their marital life. They had been supportive of each other professionally and personally. They have often been termed as Hollywood’s normal couple. They have been parenting well their three kids and still doing the best professional work.
We don’t know what really went wrong in their relationship but without any doubt they still look the best for each other. The couple had been together for ten long years – and madly in love.
This was Garner’s second marriage. She was earlier married to actor Scott Foley for three years. Affleck had previously been in a three-year relationship with actress Gwyneth Paltrow from 1997-2000. He was then engaged to marry Jennifer Lopez but finally settled down with another Jennifer.
In a business that they are in its not easy to find everlasting love. There are flings and short term affairs and marriages lasting for days and months. What Bennifer 2.0 had was love, understanding and support of each other. And of course they’ve three beautiful kids together.
Since the past few months, Ben had been seen and spotted visibly strained and unhappy. He had been going to the church and taking on the parental duty well. The couple had also fired their kids’ former nanny who’s reportedly behind the split and hired a new one. So, should they give another chance to their relationship? The couple has been secretly taking counselling to try revive their marital life for the sake of their kids and their well-wishers are all hoping the Bennifer 2.0 saga to go on forever.
