Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner got separated back in 2015 after 10 years of marriage, but still managed to remain good friends
Just a few days ago, Hollywood star Ben Affleck – in a candid interview – spoke openly about his divorce from actress Jennifer Garner. He shared that he regrets breaking things off with Jennifer and opened up on his alcohol addiction that made him go to rehab. However, now, days later, he also admitted that he still feels lucky and appreciates the fact that she is the mother of his children. He also wants his children to know that he respected their mother, Jennifer.

Ben and Jennifer share three children together, namely Violet, Seraphina and Samuel. They got separated back in 2015 after 10 years of marriage, but have managed to stay good friends every since. In an interview with People magazine, he said, “It is important that my children know that I respect and care about Jen and that she treats me the same way. I have a lot of respect and gratitude towards her. And I wish him the best. I am very grateful and respectful to her. Our marriage did not work, and that is difficult. We both really believe that it is important for children to see their parents respect and get along, whether they are together or not.”
Ben added, “When you have children with someone, you are connected with them forever. And I am very lucky that she is the mother of my children.” The actor also commented that he, too, is also a child of a broken marriage. His parents got divorced as well, which is why it is not something he wants his children to go through as well. Ben concluded, “My parents divorced when I was young and I know how painful that is, and I knew that they, the children, would have to go through that publicly. But the children are resilient. They appreciate the truth.”
