Sometime in early to mid-2004, Garner started dating her Daredevil co-star Ben Affleck and the two made their first public appearance as a couple by attending the Boston Red Sox's opening World Series games in October 2004. Since her relationship with Affleck, first as girlfriend and then as wife, Garner has been a tabloid staple. "Ben taught me that you cannot read that stuff, that it's poison," she said in 2009. On Garner's 33rd birthday, Affleck proposed to her with a 4.5 carats (900 mg) diamond ring from Harry Winston. Affleck married Garner, who was four months pregnant at the time, on June 29, 2005 in a private ceremony in the Caribbean, officiated by family friend and Garner's Alias co-star, Victor Garber, at the Parrot Cay resort on the Turks and Caicos Islands.
The couple have three children: daughters Violet Anne Affleck (born December 1, 2005) and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck (born January 6, 2009), and son Samuel Garner Affleck (born February 27, 2012).
Ben and Jen no more. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner have split after more than 11 years together. The couple's announcement comes just one day after their 10th wedding anniversary.
"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time," the couple said in a joint statement to Us Weekly on Tuesday, June 30. "This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding."
Affleck, 42, and Garner, 43, first met on set of 2001's drama Pearl Harbor, and shared the screen once more in 2003's Daredevil. They remained friends before going public as a couple at the Boston Red Sox's opening game of the World Series on Oct. 23, 2004.
They announced their intention to divorce in June 2015, and jointly filed legal documents in April 2017, seeking joint physical and legal custody of their children.

When I was a teenager and into my early 20's I really thought I might marry Ben, he was my dream guy. I was surprised when he broke up with gweneth paltrow cuz they seemed like theyd be together forever. I was sad when he married jennifer garner but I do feel they are a great couple and their kids are adorable, I think their 3rd will be a boy!

They kind of look related. But it seems like it is a loving relationship, so good for them. I would not be into a guy I looked like.
