Jennifer Garner Wishes She’d Waited Until She Was 30 To Marry

Jennifer Garner may now be happily married to Ben Affleck, but this is actually the second time around for her: her first marriage was to actor Scott Foley when she was 28.

“Everyone reaches maturity at a different times. I wish I’d known to wait for marriage until I was 30 or over. I did marry in my twenties and I found divorce a crushing experience. I thought the divorce statistics would never apply to me. I was beyond heartbroken when they did.

“But I got up and got on with it. I also kept my belief in marriage. I did not have a fairytale vision of the future of the future but I still believed I would find someone to commit to and raise kids with.”

Jennifer also said Ben surprises her every day as her husband.

“Ben is not only my husband, he has helped me in every way. He is the base of my life. He is an incredibly loving and generous man. I expected he would be a great dad and he is. But what really surprised me was how, when something goes wrong, he is so much calmer than I am.”

It sounds like these two have a great partnership! With two kids and a third on the way, that’s great to hear. Love this family :).
