Hollywood marriages don’t always stand the test of time, but once in awhile, a couple will prove to us that celebrity relationships can go the distance. This time, it’s Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, who just celebrated nine years as a married couple. Has it seriously been that long?!

It has. But Jen and Ben didn’t go all out this time around. Instead, they decided to keep their anniversary celebration low key — and kid free. They left their adorable children, Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel, at home, while Jennifer flew to Detroit, where Ben is filming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.



“Jennifer sent her kids back to LA with a nanny,” a source close to the couple told Us Weekly.

Then, on Sunday, the loyal husband and wife went out to dinner at a French restaurant in the nearby Royal Oak, Michigan called Bistro 82, where they drank red wine and enjoyed a quiet, stress-free evening.

“They looked relaxed,” the source said. “No one was really bothering them at all. They were really normal, they fit in.”

Next year, they’ll be celebrating an entire decade together. We expect bigger plans than just dinner for that one, guys.

Congratulations, Ben and Jennifer!
