Affleck and Garner have been amicably co-parenting their three children since their divorce in 2018, after 13 years of marriage.

The former couple married in 2005 and separated in 2015. Their divorce was finalized three years later.

Their co-parenting relationship has been famously strong over the years, to the point that it has fueled frequent rumors that they would reunite.

Since then, they’ve both moved on – Ben with Lopez and Jennifer with boyfriend John Miller.

Lopez recently admitted she and Ben still ‘both have PTSD’ from shining the spotlight on their first romance.

They dated in the early 2000s, sending their fans into a frenzy and drawing a storm of publicity around their infamous mega-flop movie Gigli.

They rekindled their relationship in 2021 and got married the following year, once again becoming one of the most talked about couples in showbiz.

Lopez shared in a new Variety interview that ‘we both have PTSD’ from their initial experience, but explained that in their current life as a married couple ‘we are older now. We are wiser.’

J-Lo added: ‘We also know what’s important, what’s really important in life, and it’s not so much what other people think. It’s about being true to who you are.’

The couple became engaged towards the end of 2002, but broke off the engagement in late 2003 before ending their relationship altogether in 2004.

She then married Anthony. They were together from 2004 until their divorce in 2014. She was also previously married to Ojana Noa and Cris Judd.
