Jennifer GarnerJennifer Garner may be associated with happy marriage and family life as she is now expecting her third baby with husband Ben Affleck. But Jennifer did a walk down memory lane with The Sun and said that she regrets getting married so young the first time around to then-husband Scott Foley.

The soon to be mommy-of-three told the publication:

“I wish I’d known to wait for marriage until I was 30 or over. I did marry in my twenties and I found divorce a crushing experience.”

Jennifer was 28 when she married Scott, and the pair then divorced four years later in 2004. There may have been no children in that union, but Jennifer says that she was “beyond heartbroken” when the marriage ended.

Nevertheless, she also adds:

“But I got up and got on with it. I also kept my belief in marriage.”

Such a resilient belief is no doubt present in Jennifer’s adorable growing family with husband Ben Affleck, revealing that even a wholesome family women and dedicated mother like Jennifer can misstep, marry too young, make a mistake and still find her way to motherhood — provided that marriage and motherhood are what she ultimately wants for herself.
