Affleck and Garner first met in 2001, on the set of the movie Pearl Harbor. However, the flame didn’t light until they were on the set of Daredevil in 2002.

At the time Garner was married to Scott Foley and Affleck engaged to Jennifer Lopez. So they had to wait to start their love affair and they didn’t start dating until seven months after Ben ended his engagement to Lopez.

They began dating in 2004 and married in June 2005 in a private Turks and Caicos ceremony. They welcomed their first daughter Violet Anne in December of that same year.Their second daughter Seraphina Rose Elizabeth arrived in January 2009 and son Samuel in February 2012.

Even when for fans the announcement of the separation was a surprise, the couple had a rocky relationship over the years. This was confirmed once they split and a rumor of Ben cheating with the nanny Christine Ouzounian began.

Garner said about it ‘We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to do with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation.”
