Affleck was married to actress Jennifer Garner from 2005 to 2018.
They began dating in mid-2004, They were married on June 29, 2005, in a private Turks and Caicos ceremony.

While Affleck believes paparazzi attention is “part of the deal” of stardom, he has spoken out against photographs taken at his private residence and paparazzi interest in his children specifically, who he says became the “big money” draw for photographers waiting outside his home.

Garner also testified before the California Assembly Judiciary Committee in support of the bill, which later became law.
While photographs of children may still be taken, behavior which “seriously alarms, annoys, torments, or terrorizes” children is illegal, as is “lying in wait” outside their various activities.
