The Camping actress and Ben began dating back in 2004 after meeting on the set of Pearl Harbor in 2001 and Daredevil in 2003.
By June 2005 they married in a private Turks and Caicos ceremony. The officiant and his husband were the only guests who attended.
Exactly 10 years on in June 2015, Ben and Jen announced their separation and filed for divorce in April 2017.

Following their divorce, the doting dad lived in the guest house on the side of the property. The pair now live extremely close to each other in their respective new homes so they’re both close to the kids.
Despite the breakup of their marriage, Jen supported Ben as he sought treatment last year for his alcoholism, including a stint at a residential rehab facility in Malibu.
Their split was finalized in October 2018 and they’ve continued to amicably co-parent their children for the most part – with years of therapy and rehab to help.
