Classic Quotes by Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck about their relationship:

"You know how as a kid you picture yourself with a tall, handsome husband, and you imagine him cuddling your baby? Ben is that guy." Jennifer Garner 10/2007
"I don't know what makes [the relationship] work. But it does. One thing that makes it not not work is that we're both pretty nice. [Ben] is not someone who's ever going to blow up on anyone. What I mean is, if he's ever angry with me, he doesn't act out on it in a weird way or yell at me. And I am the same. So we can handle conflict in a very loving and adult way." Jennifer Garner 2007
"Things are pretty great. We're very happy. Things couldn't be better. We're kind of taking it easy and just kind of enjoying a little downtime at home. I'm at a point now where even...vacation sort of feels a little bit like work. I'd rather just kind of chill and take it easy." Ben Affleck 6/28/2008
"It always makes me laugh when people say, 'Is she or isn't she?' Eventually you will know, so just chill out for a minute." Jennifer Garner
"Ben is pretty ideal as far as I'm concerned. I don't think you could do any better. I don't think there's a lovelier person." Jennifer Garner 4/11/2009
"My wife is an extraordinary woman...without whom I wouldn't know what to do." Ben Affleck
"I'm certainly not sleeping. Violet was a good sleeper, typically. But now that there is a new baby, she wakes up when the baby wakes up. She wants me, too, so there are times when they are both up all the time. I go from one to the other all the time." Jennifer Garner 4/11/2009
"As far as I'm concerned, the sexiest thing about a man is when he changes diapers. Maybe except for defusing a tantrum!" Jennifer Garner 4/11/2009
"I tell my wife, 'It's under control. What gives you the impression I'm not up to this task?'" Ben Affleck 4/2009
"Ben will do the school run. He dresses her and does her hair. It's pretty funny. You can always tell when he has been at it, just two random barrettes hanging in there. It's so sweet." Jennifer Garner
"I'm already planning it - practicing the rocking-chair-and-rifle routine [when my daughters begin dating]." Ben Affleck 4/2009
"When our oldest was a baby, he was so careful with her. With the second, he's flinging her around, and got her by the foot." Jennifer Garner
"He will tell me, 'You're not ready for those jeans yet!'" Jennifer Garner
"You steal the time. You steal a date, you steal a kiss, you steal a whisper. You sit next to each other on the couch with computers on your laps. After the kids are asleep you...well, you know... whatever it is. You slip away for a night, which we've only just now done for the first time. Of course, I call home while we're away. Ben would be surprised if I didn't." Jennifer Garner 1/2010
"Ben is sexy and kind, but he's also a riot. We can be very goofy together." Jennifer Garner 1/2010
"He doesn't have trouble wiggling his way in anywhere. Ben is charm personified when he wants to be. He's not easily threatened or made uncomfortable- he's very secure in that way. Maybe he just knows I'm nuts about him, and he doesn't have anything to worry about." Jennifer Garner 1/2010
"I can tell you that would be a pretty uphill battle with me. I am not anticipating having any more kids!" Jennifer Garner
"I don't want to be a stay-at-home Dad. Work is very important to me. I like to work. But I need my work to mean something to me in order for me to not be home with them." Ben Affleck
"I plan to be done. But my husband is kind of a wonder sperm kind of guy. You never know. You just have to look at him." Jennifer Garner
It gave me a stronger sense of feeling protective about my family. There's a lot of crazy, weird people out there. It's an ugly world. Ben Affleck
"I'm always trying to sweep in and be hero dad...'Have you had dessert yet?' "You guys want to watch TV?'" Ben Affleck
"All marriages, all relationships to a certain extent, require your work. They require work and investment. We work on it together, we try our best. Nobody's perfect. I would be lying to you if I said that either she or I were. She's more perfect than I am, I can tell you that." Ben Affleck
"She is by leaps and bounds the most important person to me." Ben Affleck
She won most of the fights in the movie, which was a pretty good predictor of what would happen down the road. Ben Affleck
"You go through phases. You can't expect to be courted all the time, and I don't want to court him right now - I don't have the energy!" Jennifer Garner
"I am not pregnant...but there is a bump. I have had three kids and there is a bump." Jennifer Garner
He is an amazing supportive husband. Jennifer Garner
"Dude, there were tears...I birthed babies for him and I still have never seen just the pure joy." Jennifer Garner
"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. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding." Ben Affleck 6/30/2015
"I'm pretty patient about the whole bedtime thing. I have to zen out because it goes on for such a long time with three kids." Jennifer Garner
