Bennifer 2 is extinct. The holy matrimony of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner has ended and so have your childish dreams of true love. JK. Real talk: Ben Affleck is a bro from Boston who almost married Jenny from the Block, and Jenn Garner is famous for being a nice girl in 13 Going On 30. Other than their 3 kids and "I love you's" in award acceptance speeches, this relationship was doomed.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got married in 2005 after meeting on the set of Pearl Harbor, which is ironic considering that their marriage bombed. Everybody loved them because they were the mid 2000's version of Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively - beautiful, talented, successful and obnoxiously in love. So 10 years later and nobody is really sure what went wrong. Maybe Ben had an affair or Jenn became a nagging wife or maybe they realized that besides being A-list celebrities they didn't have much in common.
I just hope that Matt Damon doesn't take the divorce too hard.
